Free vaccine for Year 11 and 12 students to protect against meningococcal disease
Erindale College Vaccination days: Thursday 23 and Friday 24 August 2018)
The ACT government is funding a free meningococcal vaccine to young people aged
between 16 and 19 years old in 2018 only. To date, this has been available through general
practitioners. In semester two of 2018, the free vaccine will be available through the Schools
Health Team when they visit the school.
Meningococcal disease is a rare but severe infection that occurs when meningococcal
bacteria invade the body from the throat or nose and enter the bloodstream. The disease
can progress very quickly and can lead to death or permanent disability.
Meningococcal disease is caused by multiple strains of meningococcal bacteria. This free
vaccine protects against meningococcal A, C, W and Y strains.
Young adults and older teenagers are at increased risk of meningococcal disease. They are
more likely to carry the bacteria in their nose and throat, and more likely to spread the
bacteria to others.
To learn more about meningococcal disease, the meningococcal ACWY vaccine and how
you can prepare for vaccination, visit:
This term the Erindale College Community are fundraising to support the Starlight Foundation. Money raised at tomorrows (Wednesday 8 August 2018) BBQ will be going towards this charity.
Other events are planned for this term.
Continued Success in our Cambridge Programs
We have received our results from the November 2017 examination series for both International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) and the ‘A’ Level examinations. IGCSE exams are presented to Year 11 students in other countries however, our students sit these exams as Year 10 students. Students who sit the ‘A’ Level examinations are completing Year 13 in overseas countries but our candidates sit the exams in Year 12. Both candidacy groups from Erindale College therefore, have had one year less to prepare for these exams and hence, their achievements can only be considered as sensational.
Congratulations to our top performing students in the IGCSE exams, with two students receiving an A* award which places them in the top few per cent of candidates from around the world.
Congratulations also to those other students who sat the IGCSE exams and who recorded B and C grades as these are also worthy of celebration.
Congratulations to our ‘A’ level examination candidate who can rate her results alongside her extremely high Australian Admission Rank (ATAR) with extreme pride.
After their success in the IGCSE a number of students are undertaking the Cambridge A/S options in Year 11 and also the ‘A’ levels in Year 12. In 2018 we are offering English Literature, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Global Perspectives and Research. We have 3 students who are continuing with their A/S level and are currently planning to sit their ‘A’ level exams in Mathematic, Physics and Chemistry.
