Year 5 High School Experience Day

YEAR 5 HIGH SCHOOL EXPERIENCE DAY

Asquith Girls High School has the pleasure of inviting your daughter/ward to participate in our exciting High School Experience Day to be held at the school on Thursday 21 November 2019.

This day will enable Year 5 students to participate in a number of inspiring and innovative activities, and experience the range of diverse and positive opportunities offered at Asquith Girls High School.

In conjunction with the engaging program being offered to Year 5 students, parents/caregivers are also invited to take part in a tour of the school and stay for morning tea with the Principal and Deputy Principals if they wish.

Students will be fully supervised by Asquith Girls HS teaching staff throughout the day.

Parents/caregivers are responsible for arranging transport to and from this event. Students should be dropped at the school hall at 8.30am and can be collected from the school hall at 2.30pm.

Students will be provided with lunch on this day, although students with food allergies or special dietary requirements should bring their own lunch. Students should bring their own food for morning tea plus a water bottle, as there will not be an opportunity to use the school canteen.

Additional extension opportunity:

Asquith Girls High School is a leader in girls’ education, providing opportunities for students to develop their knowledge, passion and skill in a diverse range of fields, including STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics), Sport, Creative Arts, the Humanities and Social Justice.

In 2019, as a snapshot of these opportunities, we would like to provide an immersive experience for those students who are passionate about Creative Arts. We are offering special extension activities involving the Band, Dance and Drama for students who have passion or experience in one of these fields.

This is an optional activity and there is no obligation to take part in this aspect of the program.

Due to time constraints, students can only choose ONE of these extension sessions.

Please be aware that spaces are limited in these extension activities and places will be allocated to students based on the order of submission of their application.

Please indicate on the online application form if you would like your daughter/ward to be considered for one of these activities.
