On March 18, the Board of Studies announced that, from 2013, PIPs will be required to be submitted electronically only and printed copies will no longer be accepted. Schools will be required to upload their students' PIPs via Schools Online as PDF files. This process is quite straightforward and, we are assured, is reliable and secure. Further information on the process will be provided to schools closer to the submission time.
Students are required to submit their PIPs to their teacher (electronically) by Monday 29 July, and schools need to then submit them to the Board by Monday 5 August.
The Board advises that if schools are aware of particular students where there may be issues in saving their projects as a pdf, or that have concerns about their capacity to upload projects, they should contact the Board by phone, fax or email:
Phone: (02) 9367 8230
Fax: (02) 9367 8302
If any schools have concerns about exporting files to PDF format from Microsoft Word, the following site may be of use:
