The "UAC University Entry Requirements for 2020" is for Year 10 students and their parents. It contains valuable information on career interest areas and what would be good HSC subjects to study to help you move forward onto that pathway. It also contains information as to whether particular university degrees have pre-requisites that must be studied at high school before being accepted into a university course.

Principal's Blog - October 2017

It’s that time of year again. The time where thirteen years of schooling reaches its pinnacle and the HSC examinations begin. Whilst the HSC plays an important role in providing an indication of what a student can reproduce of their knowledge under examination conditions …(oh dear, I didn’t do a very good job of masking my opinion then did I?)...we should not be misled into believing that it is an indicator of how well a student can think.

The Coolkids & Adolescent Health Program

The CoolKids and Adolescent Health Program:
Helping distressed children & adolescents suffering from somatic health complaints (including recurring headaches, stomach-aches etc).
About 40% of children and adolescents may experience functional somatic health complaints, which are medically benign (that is, they have no identified organic cause). The most common somatic-health complaints experienced by children and adolescents include recurring abdominal pain, gastro-intestinal symptoms, recurring headaches, chest pains, dizziness and nausea. Research has shown that these children are prone to have increased rates of school absenteeism, and this may also have an impact on their learning, peer relations and overall quality of life. Studies have also indicated that up to 80% of children and adolescents struggling to cope with these recurring functional somatic health complaints may also be experiencing anxiety and/or depressive problems.
