Students currently in Year 7 are selected on merit and work on independent, self-directed projects in consultation with the HPGE program coordinator. Parents may nominate students for participation in the program by responding to the letter to parents. This will be issued to interested Year 7 students after the start of the year and following Year 7 camp.

There is no HPGE test for Year 6 students wishing to enrol at our school.

Transferring or leaving school

Students who wish to leave the school, for example, moving overseas or changing schools, must bring a letter from parents to the enrolment officer at least one week before leaving. This gives the student time to complete the necessary sign-out procedures including returning books and paying outstanding fees.
