Need a quiet place to study?
Castle Hill Library will open their doors exclusively for HSC students on Sunday mornings, from Sunday 1 October to Sunday 22 October, between 9.30am to 1pm.
During the study sessions, students will have access to Wi-Fi, computers, photocopying and printing facilities and staff will be available to help students with any enquires.
Mayor of the Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne said Council wants to make studying a fun and easy process, while supporting Year 12 students through their final year of school.
“The HSC can be a tough time for students. By opening our library exclusively for year 12 students, we hope to alleviate any stress and provide a positive area where students can prep and feel supported throughout the exam process,” Mayor Byrne said.
“I encourage local students to get involved with these fantastic educational opportunities and resources.”
The HSC study session is a free event, however students must book online prior to attending the library and bring their ticket and student ID on the day.
Adding to the vast resources available for Year 12 students, The Hills Shire Library Service has subscribed to an online study companion, HSC Study Lab – Science.
The free online resource includes video lessons, interactive activities to explain concepts and HSC-style practice questions for science based subjects.
All content is based on the NSW syllabus and is produced by experienced Year 11 and 12 teachers and exam markers.

The library will open to the general public from 1pm.
