I mentioned last week that the series of Higher School Certificate study lectures was about to begin across the Eastern Suburbs. The “Ride the HSC Wave” assists year 12 students in preparing for the HSC with subject-oriented lectures from experienced HSC teachers. There are lectures in Ancient and Modern History, 2 Unit Maths and General Maths, Business Studies and Biology, religion and Shakespeare, personal development along with tips on writing under pressure. The lectures are organised by library staff in councils in the Eastern Suburbs and, in the past, have been both beneficial and popular. They began this week and run through to August 4. Students need to book for the lectures and there is a small fee of $5 for each one. You can book and get more information by contacting our Central Library at Eastgardens on 9366 3888 or on-line at firstname.lastname@example.org
The lectures are a great way to get a little extra for the HSC and since I mentioned them last week, our library has already had a lot of enquiries. The first lecture at the Central Library, on writing under pressure, is this Thursday, July 22, between 6.00pm and 7.30pm. The second is for general maths and will be held on Thursday, July 29, again between 6.00pm and 7.30pm. Our library staff can also supply information on the other lectures, at the libraries in Randwick, Waverley, Paddington and the Woollahra Council Chambers so don’t hesitate to call.
