Pre-filtered calendars

Some calendars have been pre-filtered to show certain dates by default. Examples of these are Stage 2 key dates (e.g. Biology Stage 2 key dates) and the exam timetable.

Be aware if you remove the filter, the calendar will show every event.

Types of searches

  • keywords — a regular search. E.g. 'assessment'.
  • tags — starts with a #. E.g. '#Stage-1' will find all entries related to Stage 1. You can enter multiple tags, but it will find ANY event with ANY of the searched tags. Tags with multiple words are always separated with a hyphen (-) e.g. #Language-and-Culture.

A keyword search will pick up events with the keyword in the title (it won't search the descriptions). The tag search will find specific events we've tagged.

Searches are not case sensitive, so 'Eligibility' will return the same events as 'eligibility'.

Useful searches

Enter these tags into the calendar search bar to show all events in that category.

  • #Stage-1
  • #Stage-2
  • #Special-provisions
  • #External-assessment
  • #School-assessment
  • #Exam — lists the examination timetable
  • #<insert-subject-name> — a simplified list of Stage 2 key dates for that subject. E.g. #Biology.

You can print the calendar from any calendar page you're on. The best printer-friendly option is the agenda view.

Printing the full calendar (with full descriptions)

In agenda view, normally the calendar displays with a shortened description. If you need to print events with full descriptions, you can use the full description calendars:

Using this display, you can either print the entire calendar, or use the search to filter the calendar before printing.

Taking a copy of the calendar

If you need to edit the calendar on your device (e.g. to remove entries, set your own reminders etc), you'll need to take a copy of the calendar. Once you do this, you will no longer be synced and will not get updates if we change any details or dates.
