  • The end of 2010 effectively saw the completion of the senior school changes
  • The Curriculum Council acknowledges the significant amount of work done by teachers to implement and assess their new courses
  • In the main the WACE exams accurately and fairly assessed students’ achievements at Stage 2 or 3
  • The approach now taken ensures that the Council can provide quality feedback to schools in all courses through the statistical and examination feedback reports and the Standards Guides
  • We hope to have at least five years before the national curriculum is implemented in Years 11 and 12 – decisions about this have not been made yet
