Mobile phones and other electronic devices used for entertainment are discouraged at school. However if a student does bring a mobile phone to school, it should be turned off during lesson time and kept secure and out of sight (including ear pods). Using a mobile phone, texting and playing games during lesson time will result in the confiscation of the mobile phone until the end of the school day.

Our school staffing entitlement includes a support teacher to assist students experiencing learning difficulties. This staff member is on site for two and a half days per week and provides mostly withdrawal assistance with individual and small groups of students.
The school counsellor is on site for five days per week (Monday to Friday) and provides a highly valuable service to students, parents and staff. The counsellor assesses individual student learning potential and provides staff with recommendations for improving students learning outcomes. Individual students consult with the counsellor on a private confidential basis.
Parents may ring the school on on 9968 1006 to organise appointments with the counsellor.
The school has a full time careers teacher who delivers career information as part of the Year 9 and 10 curriculum and provides ongoing advice and information about university and TAFE courses. The careers teacher provides expertise to other staff in implementing the school-to-work components of Stages 4 and 5 subject curriculum. The careers role also involves coordinating students who are enrolled in TAFE courses that form part of their HSC curriculum. Many of these courses have a vocational orientation that assist students to gain valuable employment skills.
The aim of Career Education is to assist students to develop the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes necessary to make informed decisions about school and post-school options and enable their active participation in working life.
The learning process in Career education is both ongoing and recurring. If students are to be adequately prepared to make realistic career decisions about school and post-school options, they need to be continually reviewing, updating and expanding their awareness and understanding of the world of work.
To achieve the outcomes of the program students in class are able to do a basic self -directed search which will produce a list of occupations, matching the responses to the questions for which they may have an interest; they are all issued with the Job Guide; all attend the Northern Beaches Careers market in May and may participate in Work Experience throughout the year.
Students are all expected to develop their own action plan and career and training pathway and know how to compose a resume, write a job application letter and research jobs and careers on the internet. Guest speakers are invited to the school to present seminars on goal setting, interview skills and other topics.
Students in year 12 are able to do a computer program, which produces an interest profile and possible career paths. They are all issued with the UAC Guide, outlining all university options, are assisted in applying for scholarships and access schemes; and those applying for TAFE are issued with the TAFE application forms.
All students are encouraged to make a time to speak to the Careers Adviser concerning their career choices.
