HSC Study Space in local libraries

Is your local public library helping out HSC students with additional study space, or maybe they are opening earlier for extra study time? 

Manly Library has booked their meeting room for group study for HSC students.  Available most weekdays from 9am-4pm between 28th September and the 6th November.  (But not all the time due to some previous bookings). Call 9976 1747 to check on daily availability.

Are you interested in writing?

Youth Writes would like to invite you to contribute to Australia’s unique anthology of student writing. Youth Writes was established in 1966 as a truly national anthology of poetry and prose by secondary school students. In Issue No. 14, Youth Writes 2006-2008, young writers from all over Australia are represented, making it a unique publication. 

The Youth Writes editors invite individual contributors to send in their best poetry and prose for inclusion in Youth Writes No. 15 2009-2010.

The co-editors, with the assistance of an editorial committee of present students, teachers and librarians, with publishing experience, will then select the works. Youth Writes takes the format of a hardback book, professionally bound, with several illustrations.

 Submissions will be accepted until 30th October, 2009.
