Congratulations to our Year 12 (2021) students who have done so well despite challenging circumstances. Over 70% of our students have received early offers into their first preference University courses, before the HSC exams even finished, which is a fantastic achievement. We wish them all the very best in all of their future endeavours!


Holidays are the perfect time to relax and enjoy a good book. Reading for even just 10 minutes a day has been shown to provide lots of benefits – and not just academically! Regular reading can also increase empathy, prevent memory loss, reduce stress, and improve skills including concentration, decision-making, verbal and analytical skills.

This is why we’re encouraging everyone to read for at least 10 minutes a day during the Christmas holidays. Use this Reading Challenge prompt sheet if you’re struggling for ideas on what to read next.

Happy holidays, and happy reading!
