Maintaining good study habits is important this year.

Self-motivation and self-management is vital for senior students preparing for their HSC. It is important for students to settle into a good study routine early in the year, and learn to set priorities and develop strong time management skills. Help your child set priorities and manage their time.


Students are able to approach any teacher at any time for support and assistance. Staff that liaise the most with Year 10 are the Year 10 Deputy Principal Mr Cole, the Year Advisor Mrs Tandog and the Assistant Year Advisor Ms Ammon.
