There are many markers throughout the year, which signify end points for this last year of high school for Year 12. Term 2 is such an end point: it is the last Term 2 that the students will be at school. This point is also significant as it marks the lead-in to the Trial HSC Examinations. Therefore, all Year 12 students should be seeing the holidays as a time to organise and revise notes and to study.
It has been great to note that many of our students are building study timetables for the HSC Trial Examinations and are attending the HSC Tutorials on offer. Many teachers are offering tuition at school during the holidays and students should avail themselves of the critical difference this tuition provides. Students who have major projects need to attend the workshops offered by our teachers in order to complete their projects to high standards prior to submission in Term 3.
Please also note that the College Library will be open from Mondays to Fridays from 8am to 4pm during the holidays.
There are further resources to support you during this time, particularly the Dr Prue Salter video support page (details and tips are below) and the below holiday study checklist and study planner.
