2022 Middle School & VCE Course Selection Sessions

2022 Middle School & VCE Course Selection Sessions

Dear LHS Families

With the current uncertainty regarding school events and the need for our 2022 planning to continue, we have made the decision to provide a virtual alternative to the VCE and Middle School Information Evening that was to take place on Thursday 15 July.

We hope both students and parents/carers can join us to enable the course selection process to continue relatively unhindered.

So far, some students have been involved in:

  • Group Course Information sessions 
  • Individual Pathway and Course Selection meetings

The Information Evening was going to provide parents/carers and students with an opportunity to find out about the next year level and discuss subjects with the staff who teach those subjects. 

To replace this, we have arranged the following:

  • An Virtual Information Session (Tuesday 20 July), where questions can be asked in the chat function
  • Access to videos from each of the subject areas
  • Email addresses for the Key Learning Area Coordinators

Upon our return to onsite learning, the Key Learning Area Coordinators will be available during nominated lunchtimes for students to discuss their options.

Tuesday 20 July – Virtual
