Year 10 Personal Project

The Year 10 students are now about a third of the way through their Personal Project journeys and the Supervisors are looking forward to seeing what progress has been made over the summer holidays. Whilst the Personal Project is an ongoing process, students should have completed their research, planning, product specifications and designs. Many will be fully involved in the creation of their product. It is important for all students to be actively working on both their products and their reports, and to be vigilant regarding dates provided on the website and by their Supervisors. Students must also document all stages of their process, including research, in their Process Journal.

Individual Personal Project meetings are scheduled for Weeks 2, 5 and 8 during Summer Term. Students should take note that due to school photos and the Swimming Carnival in Week 2, some supervisors will host their meetings on different days. Details of the meetings can be found on the Personal Project noticeboard outside the Senior Library and boys are encouraged to check this board for updates. These meetings are also listed on the Personal Project website on Thursday or Friday of the preceding week: https://my.scotch.wa.edu.au/year10/personalproject/meetings.

Students must also check their school email accounts regularly as this is the most efficient way for Supervisors to contact them. It is an expectation that the boys respond to all communications from their Supervisor, even if it's just to acknowledge receipt of the message.

This term, conferences will focus on guiding students through the report criteria and drafting the first three sections of their report. The Personal Project team wishes the boys the best of luck this term as their projects really start to take shape.
