& District Secondary College Welcome to Heywood

2020 Assessment Week

Years 7, 8 and 9 will have an Assessment Week in Week 7 of this term.  In this week, students will complete assessments in every one of their core subjects. This week gives students the excellent opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned and their knowledge in each subject area. Assessment like this helps us to celebrate individual growth and achievement, and to tailor programs to the needs of each student. It is also a quiet introduction into what exams are like in later years, allowing students to practice their skills and prepare for the future.

The timetables show when each year level will have their scheduled assessment. It is expected that all students be at school on Monday (16 Nov) through to Thursday (19 Nov). There is an Assessment Catch Up Day on Friday 20 Nov, which is only for students that unexpectedly miss a day earlier in the week. All other students are not required on the Catch Up Day and there will be no normal classes running.

I wish all of our junior students the best of luck in their revision and assessments.

About Heywood & District Secondary College

Heywood and District Secondary College is a small rural school that lies 30km north of Portland and approximately 72km from the South Australian Border. Our students travel from outlying areas from Dartmoor, Bessiebelle to Tyrendarra. The Heywood community, situated near the newly recognised Budj Bim National Park, has a strong indigenous connection to country. We ensure that our staff undergo Cultural Understanding and Safety Training (CUST) to encourage these connections to strengthen and maintain. Our cherished relationship with Winda-Mara sees local elders working closely with the school to support the local Aboriginal children and our teaching of our local Gunditjmara Language and Culture Program.

We strive to be valued as an innovative and outstanding College that promotes partnership between families, staff and the wider community. We support and empower students to accept responsibility for personal and academic growth and provide a safe and caring environment that allows all students to achieve their potential. We pride ourselves in the knowledge that each student is well-known to staff and that positive student-staff relationships prosper throughout the College.
