End-Of-Semester Reports In the coming weeks, students will begin to receive their end-of-semester reports. These reports are designed to provide an indication to students regarding their progress. Feedback from teachers will occur in the form of criteria and subject results, personalised comments and/or subject outlines, offering advice about how to improve student results in the future. It is helpful if parents and students discuss these and seek further clarification or assistance from teachers where necessary. Reports for Years 7, 9 and 10 will be mailed to families on Friday 16 June, and reports for Years 8, 11 and 12 will be mailed to families on Friday 21 July. 2018 Subject Selection We are at that time of year where we ask our current Year 7, 8 and 10 students to make their subject choices for 2018. To assist with this process, subject information booklets, and information about how to make subject selections, will be emailed to parents and students, and available on our website, from the following dates: Year 10 into Years 11-12 Monday 19 June Year 8 into 9 Monday 17 July Year 7 into 8 Monday 17 July Early next term, we will be holding Parent Information Evenings followed by Parent/Student/Teacher Interviews for our current Year 7, 8 and 10. The dates, times and venues are below: During meeting and information afternoons, parents and students will have an opportunity to speak with Subject Coordinators and teachers about the offerings for their respective year levels in 2018.
We wish everyone the best for the last week of term.

“Caring For Our Teens In The Digital Age: What Parents Need To Know” In this digital age, children spend large amounts of time on devices surfing the internet for educational or social reasons. Hillbrook’s Education Advisory Committee (EAC) are bringing you a not-to-be-missed presentation on Wednesday 19 July @ 5.30pm – mark your diaries now! Cyber Safety will be presented by Steve Window who spent 22 years with the Queensland Police Force, including time conducting online investigations with Task Force Argos. Steve is now the Cyber Safety Officer with the Anglican Schools Commission. Steve will be followed by Miriam Scott, Hillbrook’s eLearning Coordinator, speaking on resources and assistance available at school. But what do those hours spent in front of the computer do to your body? Hillbrook parent, Rosie Grant, is a Physiotherapist with post-grad qualifications in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy and Occupational Health. Health and Ergonomics in the workplace and at home is a passion for Rosie, and she will share her knowledge and insight into the safe physical parameters of technology use. Join us at 5.30pm on Wednesday 19 July for tea, coffee and soup for a 5.45pm start. The evening will wrap up at 7.45pm. More details to come.
