We were thrilled to host the Honourable Gladys Berejiklian, Premier of New South Wales and The Honourable member for Port Macquarie, Leslie Williams at our campus on Tuesday 27 October.
The announcement to invest worth millions of dollars will enhance the educational delivery to strengthen and streamline our transition pathways for all of our students was announced. The announcement highlighted the first pilot PCYC partnership with the Department of Education. I am very excited about the way Hastings Secondary College is developing as a centre of educational excellence in Port Macquarie.
I look forward to sharing the plans with our community at our Parent Lounge on 5 November.
Hastings Secondary College Principal’s Meaghan Cook and Ian Ross invite you to attend a Parent Lounge session on Thursday 5 November at 5.30 pm via Zoom.
We will provide an update on the Hastings Secondary College Infrastructure Project and discuss the revised Hastings Secondary College Mobile Phone Policy.

World Teachers Day
World Teacher's Day is being celebrated today. A huge thanks to all our incredible teachers at Hastings Secondary College who have continued their fantastic work supporting students both in the classroom and online during this challenging year. Thank you for your continued commitment to quality teaching and learning in public education.

Colour Splash and Dash
The Splash and Dash fundraiser organised by our outstanding P&C Association will take place on 18 November. A quick reminder to get your raffle tickets in, there are great prizes for the most raffle tickets sold, and most importantly, all funds go back into the campus to purchase seating for our students. Entry into the Splash and Dash is $5.00 and notes are required to be required no later than 17 November for participation.
We are so proud of this young leader. This week Zara Byron represented Hastings Secondary College ACYP Children’s Parliament.
ACYP inspires young people to provide that spark. They focus on healthy living, empowering young people and social impact. The Youth Parliament program nurtures young people and encourages them to lead, learn and connect to their community, and be advocates for causes that they are passionate about.
The HSC examinations have continued this week. The students that I have spoken to are pleased with how they have approached individual examinations. I continue to remind them that the HSC is a point in time, quite early in their life. How they use what they have learnt and what they have achieved will become an essential conversation as they transition to the next chapter of their lives. The final examination (Drama) is on the 11 November.
