Duke of Ed Bronze Qualifying Hike

31 students from BJH completed the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Bronze Qualifying hike June 4-5 and June 18-19. They were accompanied by 10 Waterford Valley High students who were completing their practice hike for their Gold and Silver Awards. We were also joined by a student from Fatima Academy and one from Holy Spirit High. The students left from Bauline East on Saturday and were picked up in Admirals Cove on Sunday, hiking a total of 20Km over the two days. Thank you to Mr. Foran, Ms. Genge, and Ms Brooker for offering this opportunity to our students.

Info for parents on the Final Science Exam

The end-of-year Intermediate Science Exam is a Scientific Literacy Assessment, counting for 10% of the final grade in the course. This is NOT a cumulative examination covering all the material taught during the year. The Unit Tests which students write at the completion of each unit are the final evaluation for that material, and the fourth Unit Test in each grade level will be written during regular classes just before the exam week.

The Scientific Literacy exam which students will write during the June exam week consists of two parts:

  1. Data analysis: a simple experiment is described, results are reported, and students are asked to graph and interpret the results.
  2. Case Study: students read an article on a science topic and answer comprehension questions.

This exam is not something you can “study” in the sense of memorizing information, though advance practice is obviously helpful. Students will practice questions and graphing from past assessments in class before exams.

If you have any further questions regarding final evaluations in science, please contact your child’s science teacher.
