Year 11 Adviser: Mr Rand Hennessy
Assistant Adviser: Mr Alex Brattoni
Year 11 students have witnessed the graduation of Year 12 and now find themselves as senior students in the school. With this position comes all the responsibilities of setting high standards for themselves and of being positive role models for the rest of the school.
Many have agonised over their HSC studies, reviewing their Preliminary HSC marks and deciding on the best approach to their final year of study. For some students, it has meant consolidating their timetable and dropping some subjects. For others, it has meant increasing their study load and expanding into Extension courses. Some already have goals beyond Year 12, including entry into university, trades and travel. Whatever their future intentions, their Wellbeing team, including our Wellbeing Coordinator, Year Adviser, Assistant Year Adviser, Year Head Teacher, Roll Call teachers and teacher mentors are here to assist and advise them. To further guide them, each student is being personally interviewed by the Principal and Year Adviser.
Year 11 Students have been given a number of documents relevant to their HSC studies:
- HSC Assessment Booklet
- 2018 HSC Rules and Procedures booklet from NESA
- ELES Study Skills workbook (linked to the online Study Skills Handbook)
Information for students on the Higher School Certificate can be found at https://studentsonline.bostes.nsw.edu.au/
Information for parents can be found at http://www.boardofstudies.nsw.edu.au/hsc/
This year, students start preparing for the Higher School Certificate, so it's important your child settles into a good routine that balances study commitments and life outside of school.
Preparing for the HSC
The subjects studied in Year 11 are preliminary subjects for HSC study and exams in Year 12.
Year 11 can be a challenging time for students. Your child's year adviser and other staff are available to give support or students can make an appointment to see the school counsellor.
Our school careers adviser can help students make educational choices, define a career direction and prepare for future study and training.
The careers advisory services website also offers help in clarifying course choices, employment opportunities, career pathways or training options. See career development for students (also in community languages).
