As part of a Year 12 initiative to become more involved within the school and wider community and to provide the opportunity to develop leadership skills and social and cultural awareness, Year 12 Adviser, Mr Joel Foster, and self-nominated students from across year 12 have worked to establish a year committee. Year 12 students are free to join at any time and work collaboratively on many projects for the betterment of year 12 and the wider school and community.
Students of Year 12 should also seek to discuss the possibility of work experience and scholarship applications with Mr Foster or the Careers Adviser. This could not only assist students select possible post-school work options but also build leadership and employment skills, acquire possible references for student resumes and act as a positive incentive for many students.
With examination being a major component of senior school, the homework centre is a valuable resources that students should utilise. Students who feel they are struggling with study can see Mr Foster for some helpful study techniques.
A range of other activities have also been arranged for the 2017 year including Driver Education courses, reward excursions and leadership programs.
