Year 12 Students – Entry Information and Applications
All Year 12 students are aware that UAC is open for university applications and they will have received their UAC PIN. This must be kept in a safe place as the College does not receive a copy of this. Early bird applications close Wednesday 30 September 2020 – see https://www.uac.edu.au/assets/documents/ug-fact-sheets/ug-fact-sheet-key-dates.pdf for more information.

Also, some students may be interested in applying for an Educational Access Scheme, a Schools Recommendation Scheme or an Equity Scholarship. These are also open, visit https://www.uac.edu.au/future-applicants/scholarships-and-schemes/educational-access-schemes/disadvantages-and-documents for more information on scholarships and schemes. Students can see Mrs Demmocks or me for more information regarding these schemes.

Year 11 students: The HSC Year 2021 – The Final Lap
All current Year 11 students and parents were invited to a virtual information evening a couple of weeks ago.  The intention of the evening was to provide students and parents with information relating to extension subjects and subjects with major work components for the final year of schooling. If you missed this session, the recording and presentations are in CALEB: https://caleb.btac.nsw.edu.au/homepage/2414. Any students intending on picking up Year 12 extension subjects need to see me for a change of subject request form.

National Science Week celebrations
Other articles this week talk about the celebrations held at the College during National Science week, but this is also a great time to highlight the career possibilities for all students in these areas. Here is a great article which highlights how thinking about an everyday moment differently can change a young person’s life: https://www.smh.com.au/national/mum-told-me-to-give-back-to-the-community-the-young-australian-creating-robots-for-good-20200626-p556nl.html
