Our HSC talk programme is part way through, if you want to go to one of the 3 remaining talks ring the library that is holding it to book your place – the venues have differing capacities. It’s been great to see students travelling “from afar” to get to lectures, one student caught 2 buses, which took over an hour. Below is a picture of one of our lecturers Lyndall Hough with 3 local students after her “Writing for the HSC” lecture.

Now that the 2007 trials are nearly over – have you found it difficult at home to study? – if so why not head away from the distractions of the TV at home and use your local public library. All the public libraries on the Northern Beaches have quiet areas in them to study and read.
