Did You Know?

Social media, mobile phones and technology in general can be a massive distraction when studying.  As parents we understand the ongoing study battle and the frustration that results.  Did you know that research shows that students who use social media while studying (even if only in the background) can get 20 per cent lower marks than students who don’t!

This week we have continued to meet our Year 11 students to discuss goals, careers options and pathways and provide a little bit of guidance as they set-out on their Year 12 HSC journey.   Each Year 11 student has a meeting scheduled please check your emails and jot the day and time in your diary. 

We welcome all students in all years.

Career appointments for all years : Appointments can be made before school, during lunch or after school, senior students can book during a study period.  Please email   the Careers team.
