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. Look closely at the University of Sydney, as they have recently changed many of their courses and requirements regarding the need to study 2 unit Mathematics.

Included in that email will be a locker charter to be signed by parents and students. This will outline the expectations of locker ownership, including keeping them clean during term, ensuring that all food is removed at the end of each week and for school holidays, and expected behaviour when accessing lockers.
The charter will also include an assurance that keys will not be copied. This is to ensure security of locker contents from year to year.
3. Keys will be issued to students in week 8 once payment and the signed charter have been received.
