2022 session information

Year 12 can be a particularly stressful time for students and family/carers. The pressure to succeed and make life changing decisions can be overwhelming for students and those who are trying to support them on their HSC journey.

Our sessions provide information about how to:

  • Provide support during the HSC period
  • Understand the various challenges facing your child
  • Navigate higher-education options, pathways and the changing world of work.
  • Talk to other parents who are facing similar challenges
  • Gain practical advice about university applications
  • Opportunity to ask questions in a friendly forum
  • Receive a weekly email with tips, resources and advice to help you navigate the stresses of the HSC.

The program consists of five 1-hour Zoom sessions with weekly emails sent out to participants. This program is completely FREE.

All sessions are delivered online via Zoom in an evening timeslot of 6 pm to 7 pm. Zoom links and reminders are sent out via email and SMS.
