Dear Parents and Guardians,
Salesian College aims to provide students with the highest quality education. One component of this endeavour is the provision of excellent resources. Significant time has been spent in sourcing and trialling various contemporary learning tools for inclusion in 2020.
The VCE Unit 1 – 4 and Applied Learning Booklists are now available. You can access these via PAM (Knowledge Bank, Subject Selection, 2020 Booklists) or here. All orders are to be completed online at www.campion.com.au. To ensure learning resources are ready for the pre-packaged collection service ahead of the 2020 Headstart Program, please ensure booklists are completed by Friday 18 October.
In Units 3 & 4, Edrolo is a compulsory resource that will be utilised in all of the subjects that are supported by this product. Fortunately, it is available for most of the Unit 3 & 4 subjects we offer here at the College. Edrolo is an extensive study and exam revision resource designed by experienced VCE teachers, exam assessors and textbook authors. It provides comprehensive and up-to-date online video lectures and step-by-step worked examples from past exams. Edrolo also includes interactive quizzes which can help students understand, clarify and revise the content which is presented in the classroom. The full list of subjects offered by Edrolo are listed in the VCE Units 1 – 4 Booklist. Please select all of the Unit 3 & 4 subjects that your son will undertake to ensure access to this most valuable resource.
We are pleased to inform you that costs associated with the resources we have included on the booklist have remained consistent with this year, in a few of the year levels there has been a small decrease in costs. Please note that the digital bundles need to be paid up-front with all hard copy books to ensure students have access to digital resources from day one of the 2020 school year. As with any financial commitment, we ask you to contact the finance office at the College if there are any issues with regard to meeting this financial commitment. Every effort will be made to support families who find themselves in difficult financial circumstances. We believe that the inclusion of these exciting resources will continue to foster the vibrant learning environment we have here at Salesian College.
Should you have any queries or concerns, please contact the College.
