HSC Trials and Study Skills

Director of Curriculum, Ms Lynsey Porter

Director of Curriculum, Ms Lynsey Porter

Dear Year 12,

I hope that your HSC preparation is going well as we begin a term that is certainly a different one than we expected. We can’t change the way things are, so let’s focus making the most of some advantages – not having to lose time traveling to and from school each day, being able to get focused work done at home, being able to contact your teachers easily for help, being able to focus just on your studies at this critical time with the Trials being pushed back a few weeks.

You are getting close to the finish line, exciting stuff. Visualise yourself in LESS THAN 4 MONTHS, sleeping in each day, going out to the beach, seeing friends, going out at night – much better that the lockdown happens now rather than when you finish Year 12! And good luck to those with performances and major works in the next weeks, soon that will be another thing off your plate.

As you prepare for the Trials, the Dr Prue Salter Year 12 Support Study Skills resources can assist you with your preparation.  Login to the videos using the details below:
