CHANGES TO 2022>23 YEAR 7 SELP APPLICATIONS & TESTING
Dear Parents and SELP applicants,
On 25th of February 2022, we became aware of a new rule which the DET is applying to all Government Secondary Colleges with regard to testing for Special Programs.
Schools are no longer permitted to conduct a test prior to the 20th of July 2022. The regulation is reprinted below
Planning for 2023 enrolments
In advance of enrolments for the 2023 school year, schools are reminded that:
Student tests or interviews must not occur prior to placement offers being made. For secondary schools, this means that testing of Year 6 students cannot occur prior to the state-wide release of Year 7 placement offers on Wednesday 20 July 2022
As a consequence of this directive, we suspended registrations with Edutest for our selection test which was scheduled for early May, (as it has been for the last 25 years).
· Our testing date for Year 6 to 7 SELP applicants will move to Saturday, August 13, 2022
· All applicants who have already registered with Edutest will receive a full refund.
· All those who wish to sit the test on August 13, must RE-APPLY when registrations re-open after July 20, 2022.
We will provide all relevant information for those who wish to apply for that test at the beginning of July.
We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience of this change.
William Hatzis | Assistant Principal | Werribee Secondary College
