It is coming to the time of the year to farewell our current Year 12 cohort. The final year of education is a busy and stressful time for students; managing their studies whilst beginning to make important decisions about their future.

The Hampton Park Secondary College community wishes all students the very best as they continue on their pathway through life.

The current Year 12 cohort can be proud of the way that they have conducted themselves throughout 2017. Hampton Park Secondary College has a history of students respectfully celebrating the end to their schooling in a manner that leaves a strong and positive image of them as individuals and as a group. It is through this respect for the rights of the entire school community that individuals behave responsibly to continue learning, not disrupt the learning of other students and to show their appreciation for the school community for the time that has been invested into them.

A number of key events have been organized during the final weeks to respectfully celebrate the end of thirteen years of schooling and these are detailed below:

Monday 16th October – Thursday 19th October: Senior VCAL interviews

All Year 12 VCAL students have their interviews scheduled during this time. Please check appointment times carefully. The final date for the completion of all Outcomes is Monday 23rd October.

Thursday 19th October (VCAL) and Friday 20th October 2017 (VCE): Locker clean out

All lockers need to be cleaned of student belongings and locks must be removed by the end of Period 4. These areas are required for VCAA examinations. Please use the extra bins supplied throughout the week to remove rubbish and ensure that lockers are completely empty. If you would like to donate spare books, pens or materials or uniform that you no longer require please hand into the Senior School Office.
