Leap 2018 and Beyond

The Learning Extension Academic Program (LEAP) has been an integral pathway for students at Hedland SHS since 2012 and is designed to support students with tertiary aspirations. It has grown from being a single multi-age group of Year 8 and 9 students in 2012 to four separate streams in 2017. In light of this growth, Hedland SHS would like to invite the parents of students at the school and those parents of Year 5 and Year 6 students at the primary schools in Hedland to attend a workshop to help strengthen this program for the future.

The workshop will be held in the Hedland SHS library on Tuesday 1 August 2017 at 6:00pm.

 

Please RSVP to Rebecca Poole on 9172 8000 by Monday 31 July 2017.

Have a Try Health and Community Services Day – 29th March

North Regional TAFE will be holding a YEAR 10 “Have a Try Health and Community Services Day” on Wednesday 29th March.

Deciding what to do after school can be a difficult decision.

This fantastic program is a unique initiative to raise the profile of traditional roles in the Health Industry and connect young people to their future career.

If your Son/Daughter is interested in participating in the “Have a Try Health and Community Services Day” then please email Mrs Russell at teneal.russell@education.wa.edu.au no later than the 20th March. Please see attached flyer for more information.
