Thank you so much for all your help and wishing everyone happy holidays!

One more week left until the end of the term and end of the school year. With all exams done and dusted, assessments handed in and the summer holidays just around the corner, it’s time for all textbooks and English novels to be returned to Book Hire!

Please note that Book Hire is open Monday-Thursday, 8am-4pm, with the library as the second drop off point if needed.

A HUGE thank you to all students who have been diligent and returned their books already :)

We hope that your son has settled well into the start of Year 12. As per the College Calendar, there is a Year 12 (2023) Parent and Student Information Evening next Wednesday, 19 October in the College Gymnasium at 6pm.

Each family will also need to read through the HSC Policies and Procedures booklet which can be accessed by clicking on the button below.

The Year 11 Semester 2 Report will be available next week for you to view and download on the Parent Lounge in TASS. You will receive an email when the reports are ready, which will include the instructions on how to access the information on TASS.

This report will include your child’s Learner Profile grades, final course mark, rank and cohort rank number (number of students in the course) based on his assessment task(s) for each subject. VET subjects do not include a mark or rank as they are competency-based subjects.

From the start of Term 4, all Year 11 textbooks must be returned to the Textbook Hire Office or to the Library please.

Once returned, Year 12 textbooks can then be issued.
