The four guests who spoke shared their stories, explaining the hardships and adversity they have experienced and witnessed.

Years 7-12 have participated in a variety of targeted sessions in Semester One that addressed their study skills issues and concerns and enabled students to learn new ways to improve their results at school. In 2018 we have continued to deliver the quality study skills handbook by Enhanced Learning which we subscribed to for the first time in 2017.  This program provides a comprehensive guide as to the study skills needed for success in high school, with modules such as Time Management, Managing Workload, Avoiding Procrastination, Working better at Home and Preparing for Exam Blocks.
