Above State Average – Year 10 Science results

VALID (Validation of Assessment for Learning and Individual Development) is a state wide test for Year 10 Science students. There are 24,161 students who sat the exam.

 

PCS Science students have been ranked significantly above state average in all reporting strands: Extended response tasks, knowledge and understanding, planning, designing and conducting experiments, problem solving and communication. Our best result was for the extended response tasks where 20.7% of PCS students scored in the highest level (Level 6) where the state cohort scored 9.6%. Congratulations Year 10!

Year 10 Geography

Year 10 Geography went on a field trip to Penrith Lakes last Tuesday 14 November. Students had an opportunity to visit Waterside and various areas around Penrith Lakes to learn how water is managed in these areas, and to gain an appreciation of the natural and man-made resources in our local area.
