TEXTBOOKS: The signing over of Government Textbook Allowance payments, and levies included in school fees provides students with textbooks each year. Students are responsible for the care of textbooks and lost or damaged books are to be paid for.

PLAGIARISM: Students will be instructed by teachers to submit their assignments into the plagiarism checking software TURNITIN.

REFERENCING: Referencing is used at the end of an assessment task to detail the sources of information and ideas used by students to complete their assessment task. The reference list will detail which websites, books, images and videos were used as sources of information.
