Here at the ASMS, we have a fantastic record of supporting our students to achieve their preferred post-school pathway, and we don’t expect this year to be any different.

We are working closely with organisations such as the SACE Board and modifying our assessment as they suggest. We know that some students and their families are concerned about the impact of the current restrictions on their 2021 options, and we wish to reassure each and every one of you that the school is working behind the scenes to support your child in every way we can.

An excellent option for all our year 12s is the Portfolio Accredited Tertiary Entrance pathway that they can all access to Flinders University. This will require students who wish to complete this to apply and identify how they will develop the competencies and dispositions that Flinders University has identified as being of most importance in being successful as a university students. The application process isn’t onerous and we will work with any student who wishes to apply for this.

There are many other post-school options available and you can find out more about these and the PATE at https://portal.asms.sa.edu.au/MyClasses/learning-studies/Pages/Student-Pathways.aspx

We appreciate that this is a confusing time for many families and encourage you to contact your child’s Learning Studies teacher if you have any questions.
