HS DAILY – Friday, February 3, 2017



On Monday or Tuesday, all grade 6-9 students will sit a trial test for the annual ISA tests. This year, the tests will be done online, hence the need for a trial. This will take place in your regular period one and two sessions, though the test will only take 45-50 minutes. While there are the usual two tests – Maths and English – you will only be doing the Mathematical Literacy for the trial. Please note, this is a trial and will not affect your YIS report.

You will still need to be prepared. You will need to:
– make sure your laptop is charged in the morning
– bring a pen, ruler and eraser
– bring scrap paper
– grade 9 need a calculator, MS students do not.
– you will be using Safari, not Chrome.

On Tuesday, there will be some room changes:
Ms Clark’s PE class – go to M103
Mr Murray’s PE class – go to M101
Mr Ralph’s PE class – go to M208
Ms Barbour’s class – go to M203
