Homebush Boys Trial Examinations To Be Pushed Back
We want to voice our concerns regarding the plans to start the trial examinations as soon as we return to school on AUG 16th,
There is a lot of uncertainty with what returning to school will look like and there has been a lot of anxiety for us. Many students have lacked social interaction and physical activity during the lockdown which has increased stress and likely decreased productivity for many.
By pushing trials back towards the end of AUG (like how many schools are), it would allow students enough time to properly prepare for exams and overcome the major setbacks we have experienced in our studies.
The indefinite shutdown of DOE , as well as other contributing factors have all majorly hindered our preparation, hence an extra delay to trials would allow us to more adequately prepare for our exams, which must ONLY be fair, as over 500+ schools are doing so, so it would only make sense to grant us the same privilege to ensure the best performance of the cohort.
