Cambridge Programs IGCSE for years 9 and 10 and AS and A levels in years 11 and 12
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.

Meningococcal ACWY school vaccination program
ACT will be implementing a meningococcal ACWY school-based vaccination program targeting Year 10 students in high schools from term 1 2018.
Meningococcal disease is a rare but serious infection which can become life-threatening very quickly. Adolescents are at increased risk of meningococcal disease.
The School Health Immunisation Team will visit Year 10 high school students from term 1 2018 and provide them with the vaccine which protects against the meningococcal A, C, W and Y strains.
This program has been initiated in response to increasing cases of meningococcal W. Evidence suggests that this strain of the disease is more severe than other types.
