Hillbrook in Action is on again this year on Thursday 7 August from 10-2pm. This is the day we invite prospective families and students into our school community to get a taste of what we do on a daily basis. To facilitate the day we will have an adjusted order of lessons and slightly different times. Please check with your teacher and Home Teacher regarding this. Attached is the schedule of lessons and times for the day.
Year 10 Students, please check your school email for details on how to submit your subject preferences. The online submission portal will be open until midnight on Tuesday 5 August. Your preferences will determine the final line structure and the choices available. Any queries please see Mr Merritt, Mrs Forbes, your PSD or Home Teacher.
A reminder about the Subject Selection informal information afternoon on Wednesday from 3.30-5.30pm upstairs of the library. This is your opportunity to talk with your current Year 10 teachers about your strengths and talents and to find out in more detail from the Subject Co-ordinators what is involved in the senior subjects you are considering.
