Yr 8 Students

Dear students,

Please remind your parents about the Yr 8 into Yr 9 Subject Selection Information evening on Monday 3 August from 6pm to approximately 7.30pm in the Chapel. The purpose of the evening is to outline for parents our approach to Year 9 and Year 10, explain the subject selection process and outline considerations to keep in mind when making subject choices. 

 The evening will be followed up on Tuesday 11 August with the opportunity for you and your parents to talk with Subject Co-ordinators of Yr 9 & 10 subjects to help deepen your understanding of the requirements for the various subjects prior to making choices. This is an informal afternoon starting at 3.40pm and finishing approximately at 5.30pm in L1, L2 and L3 (upstairs of the Library), current Year 8 teachers will also be available to discuss current progress.

 A copy of the Subject Selection booklet can be found in Year 8 General Information course under subject selection.

Mr Merritt

Final Edition of CHEESE - 9 Blue NewsFlash
by Miriam Kroker - Thursday, 18 June 2015, 4:15 PM

The last Cheese has arrived! When I announced to 9 Blue that this would be our final edition, the students were falling over themselves to contribute. The June Issue has two editors! I would like to thank Emma Kellett-Lunney and Jack Moeser for their hard work this month. They have worked with their classmates and other members of the Hillbrook community to collate this Issue. 

In this edition, you can read about the Jurassic Zoo, Year 9 Camp, what's happening in Design & Technology, Reader's cup and so much more!
