Year 12: NTCE Stage 2

WELCOME TO THE SENIOR SCHOOL

Congratulations!

Our aim in 2015 is to continue to provide our senior students with every means available to achieve success in their chosen course.  At the senior level, students are expected to take greater responsibility for their own academic performance and behaviour.  Consequently they will experience a different relationship with staff.  Students who were with us in Year 11 would recognize this difference.

We think there is much to be gained by completing Year 11 and Year 12 at St Philip’s. We offer programs and support which provide more than just a good academic outcome.  We believe students need to achieve balance in their lives through opportunities to develop personal and life skills, to learn to work efficiently and to still have time to play.

All students are encouraged to realise their potential.  A whole range of leadership opportunities and experience opens up in Year 11.  The Year 11 Leadership Course is considered by many to be the highlight of their school years and the particular event which gives them the confidence to set and reach their goals.  The Leadership Course, if completed satisfactorily, credits the student with 2 units towards completion of the Northern Territory Certificate of Education.  Some students already have received Stage 1 Credit resulting from Community Learning, Work Education, Sports Craft and the Societies and Environment courses offered to students in Year 10. 

In Year 12, we encourage you to be confident that you can achieve success with your chosen subjects.  Throughout the year you need to find a balance between your study workload and personal time.

Focus on gaining the best possible results. 

There is a range of support services available at the College and it is imperative that you grasp these opportunities and make the most of them.

The Stage 1 (2016) & Stage 2 (2017) subject handbook is intended to help you make accurate subject choices and provides in-depth information regarding subjects offered etc.

If you have any questions at all regarding the Senior School and/or Stage 1 and Stage 2 courses please email the Director of Teaching, Learning and Curriculum, Mr Peter Wagner.

Last but not least, choose your subjects wisely with your future in mind and enjoy your final senior years at St Philip’s College.
