Over the years I have tried many different ways to disseminate information in a timely fashion to Year 12. But you can guarantee when I do my weekly/fortnightly newsletters, the minute I press send, something new comes in. So in an attempt to make sure you are getting the most up-to-date info I have decided to do a ‘Live Newsletter’ As things come in they will be added. I will try and ensure that it is obvious when things have been posted. It will be your responsibility to make sure you check it a couple times a week :)
For your convenience, the different sections of the newsletter are hyperlinked, so that you can go directly to the information that applies to you :)
Click here for the folder which contains previous Newsletters
Not a lot happening at the moment, but it is good for you to get in the habit of checking this regularly.
If you have not already done so, please complete the following form.
It is a requirement that all Year 12 students have at least one meeting with me in Term 1. So if you have not had a meeting yet, please make an appointment ASAP.
If you want to meet with me, please try and schedule your appointment for a time that you have a study. If this is not possible, check with your classroom teacher first :) Click here
to make an appointment to see me.
Charles Sturt University (CSU) are coming to give an interactive and dynamic presentation to Year 12 about what studying at university is really like.
Students will discover the possibilities for their futures through hands-on exercises to compare their post-school options.
Students will also learn about the benefits of attending a regional university, plus meet current students and hear about their experiences on campus.
They will be here on Tuesday 6th March Lesson 5.
If interested in attending, please complete this form.
High Achievers TAKE NOTE. This is a VERY lucrative Scholarship. Click on the link for more information.
The Tuckwell Scholarship is unique in that it allows you to study a single or double undergraduate program, including honours and vertical degrees (degrees that combine undergraduate and graduate study, across a range of disciplines, completed in a reduced time-frame), in any discipline offered at ANU for up to five years. As part of the program, scholars also receive a wide range of academic and emotional support from the Fellows, their peers and the staff of the program.
