1. Principal’s Message

This handbook has been produced to provide students and their parents with advice about the Higher
School Certificate and the senior curriculum at Ku-ring-gai High School. Preparing for the final years of
schooling requires students to set goals and select subjects that support their post-schooling aspirations.
Years 11 and 12 are different to the previous years of school and require even greater student and family
commitment. Students are strongly advised to set a strong foundation of schoolwork and study habits in
Year 10 as they prepare for the academic demands of the HSC.
Many factors assist in contributing to student success at school generally, but are particularly important
for Years 11 and 12. Essentially, success in the HSC is linked to engagement in learning at school and the
“learning community” of the school. Some key points for parents and students that must be considered in
choosing subjects and being successful in Years 11 and 12 are:

Students:
   • Always choose subjects you like, are competent at and are likely to enjoy;

   •   Discuss these choices with family and your teachers. Seek as much information from teachers
       and other “people who know”– it is your education, so do not base your choices on the choices of
       friends.

   •   Always get the facts from your teachers and listen to their advice. Teachers know your learning
       style.

   •   If you have no clear idea of what you want to do upon leaving school yet require continuing with
       your education, keep your options open and choose your subjects accordingly.

   •   Successful HSC students are students who demonstrate independence within their work habits.
       They do not have parents nagging them to study, they listen to advice from teachers and they
       complete their tasks on time.

   •   Students who demonstrate talent in the creative arts in Years 7 – 10 often neglect these talents in
       the senior school, thinking that they should try other subjects in senior school. This can be a big
       mistake for creative people. The school offers a full range of subjects within the Creative Arts; the
       Board Developed Courses are equally academic in their rigour.

Parents:
Parental support is absolutely essential. Ensure that you are available to talk with or assist in any way
during study times. Study can also be a very lonely activity and students can find it difficult to be motivated.

Allow your child to stay focused on their studies and balance the demands of any part-time work. Research
indicates that many students who fail to meet expectations in the HSC are the result of too many extended
hours working part-time. Part-time work is an important part of adolescence and preparing for adulthood.
However, it is not essential for success in the HSC. If your child is working part-time, they will need to adopt
very good time-management practices. In Year 12, it is advised that no part-time work be undertaken. The
work “at hand” is the attainment of the Higher School Certificate.
I hope that you will find the information in this handbook useful to help you select a senior course or study
best suited to your future requirements. I encourage you to research your course needs thoroughly, weigh
up the advice you receive and be realistic in your choice of course.

2. Studying for the Higher School Certificate

The Higher School Certificate (HSC) recognises 13 years of schooling. In the interests of greater career
choices and increased opportunities for study at university, colleges and TAFE NSW, the HSC offers a full
range of study areas matching individual abilities, interests and goals.

To be eligible to enter for the HSC students must:
   •   hold a NSW Stage 5 Record of Achievement (ROSA) or its equivalent OR
   •   be granted provisional eligibility

 In order to receive the HSC students must:
   • study an approved pattern of Preliminary and HSC courses
    • complete the HSC: All My Own Work (or its equivalent) before you submit any work for Preliminary
       or HSC courses, unless you are only entered for Year 11 and Year 12 Life Skills courses
   • have a satisfactory record of attendance and application in each course
   • satisfactorily undertake the school’s assessment program in each course
   • sit for and make a serious attempt at the required HSC exams.
   • complete a sufficient number of Preliminary and HSC courses within five examination years

 Preliminary courses are those usually taken in Year 11 and do not have an external examination.
 HSC courses are usually studied in Year 12 and end with an HSC examination. The study of HSC
 courses will commence in Term 4 of Year 11.

 Students must complete the Preliminary course in a subject before undertaking the HSC course in the
 subject. In some circumstances both the Preliminary and HSC component of a subject can be studied
 in one year. Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses are not classified as Preliminary or HSC
 and can be studied in either year.

 2.1 Requirements for the Award of the HSC

 English is the only compulsory Higher School Certificate subject.

 To be eligible for the award of the Higher School Certificate you must satisfactorily complete at least:
     • 12 units in your Preliminary study pattern (Year 11 – 3 terms)
     • 10 units in you HSC pattern (Year 12 – 4 terms starting Term 4 Year 11)

 Both study patterns must include:
     • at least six units of Board Developed courses
     • at least two units of a Board Developed course in English
     • at least three courses of two unit value or greater
     • at least four subjects

 Oral, practical and project work required for specific courses and the assessment requirements for each
 course must be completed.

 A serious attempt at the required Higher School Certificate examinations must be made.
2.2 Course Requirements

Most courses offered for the Higher School Certificate have a 2 unit Preliminary and a 2 unit HSC
component. Each 2 unit course requires approximately 120 hours per year, or 4 hours per week, of
classroom study.

Extension study is available in English, Mathematics, History, Music, some languages and some VET
courses in the Preliminary and / or HSC years. Extension courses are designed to build on the content
of the 2 unit course and require students to develop greater competence and understanding.

2.3 Types of HSC courses

Board Developed courses are the large number of courses set and examined by the NSW Education
Standards Authority (NESA) They contribute to the calculation of the ATAR.

Board Endorsed courses are developed by schools, TAFE and universities. All Board Endorsed Courses
count towards the Higher School Certificate and are listed on the Record of Achievement. However, Board
Endorsed Courses do not count towards the calculation of the ATAR, as there is no external exam and
assessment is school based.

Special education (Life Skills) Students that have special education needs can attain the HSC by
studying Life Skills courses. All Life skills count towards the Higher School Certificate and are listed on the
Record of Achievement. There are specific entry general eligibility and study pattern requirements for the
Life Skills courses that lead to the HSC. Life Skills courses do not count towards the ATAR.

Vocational Education and Training (VET) - Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses teach
industry specific skills that are relevant to future study and employment. These are competency
based and students gain both an HSC qualifications and Australian Qualification Framework (AQF)
accreditation. A workplace component is a compulsory part of all VET Framework courses. VET courses
may be counted as either Preliminary or HSC courses.

The VET Curriculum Framework courses delivered at Ku-ring-gai are:
2.3.1 Entertainment
2.3.2 Hospitality

2.4 TAFE Delivered VET Courses

Other VET courses are Board Endorsed and are usually delivered at TAFE NSW (referred to as TVET
courses). These courses have no external examination and do not contribute to the ATAR. Examples
include Human Services, Children’s Services, Community Services, Design Fundamentals, Computer
Assembly .
Important things to consider when selecting TVET courses:
    1. block delivery of course hours – 4 hours one afternoon per week (usually 1.00 – 5.00pm)
    2. transport might be difficult! Travel to TAFE may involve several buses and significant travel
       time. School bus passes cannot be used to travel to and from TAFE.
    3. adult learning environment – students take responsibility for their own learning at tertiary level.
    4. be informed about course content! Read all course information available from your Careers Adviser
       or Head Teacher VET.
    5. attendance is required at all lessons. One missed lesson equals a week of course content missed.

2.5 Studying during an apprenticeship or traineeship
Students can complete a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship while at school. These combine
paid work and study, lead to a recognised Vocational Education and Training (VET) credential and count
towards the HSC.
2.6 Accumulation of the Higher School Certificate

Students may accumulate an HSC over a five-year period. The five-year period will commence in the
first year a student attempts an HSC examination or completes an HSC VET course. This pattern of
study is called Pathways

Students accumulating an HSC will receive a Results Notice for each calendar year of study. The
cumulative record will record all Preliminary and HSC courses satisfactorily completed including
repeat attempts. The mark of the final attempt on a particular course is the mark counted in the ATAR.

2.7 Acceleration

Students may undertake Preliminary or HSC courses in advance of their usual cohort. Decisions about
acceleration will be made by the Principal. Accelerants may be able to undertake additional units for the
HSC or undertake further study at TAFE NSW or university while still at school.

2.8 Leaving school without the HSC
If you decide to leave school before completing your HSC, you have three other options to show your
achievements and credentials:
1. eRecord: You can retrieve a record of your grades from Students Online on the NESA website at
    any time.
2. Record of School Achievement (RoSA): You may be eligible for a RoSA if you meet certain criteria.
   The RoSA shows your courses and grades for Years 10 and 11, and any HSC courses you have taken.
3. Literacy and numeracy test results: You can take optional online literacy and numeracy tests and
   show the results to potential employers.

Talk to your teachers about the RoSA and the literacy and numeracy tests if you are thinking about
leaving school before you complete the HSC.
2.9 Australian Tertiary Admission Rank – ATAR

The Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) is a number between 0 and 99.95 with increments of
0.05. It provides a measure of your overall academic achievement in the NSW HSC in relation to that
of other students and assists institutions to rank applicants for tertiary selection. It is calculated by the
institutions and released by UAC. The ATAR is a rank not a mark.
To be eligible for an ATAR students must satisfactorily complete at least 10 units (including at least
two units of English) of ATAR courses including at least eight units of Category A courses. Courses
completed must include at least three Board Developed courses of two units or greater and at least four
subjects.

ATAR courses are Board Developed Courses for which there are examinations conducted by the
NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) that yield a graded assessment. These are the only
courses that can be included in the ATAR calculations. ATAR courses are classified as either
Category A or Category B courses.

2.10 Assessment and Reporting

The HSC is based on a standards referenced framework. Student performance is assessed and
reported against standards of achievement established for each course.

School based assessment tasks constitute 50% of the HSC mark. The other 50% comes from
the HSC examination. The HSC mark for 2 unit courses is reported on a scale of 0 to 100. A mark
of 50 represents the minimum standard expected. There are five performance bands above 50
that correspond to different levels of achievement in knowledge, skills and understanding. Band 6
corresponds to the highest level of achievement, indicating a range of marks between 90 and 100.

On satisfactory completion of the HSC students receive a portfolio containing:

The Higher School Certificate Testamur
The official certificate confirming achievement of all requirements for the award of the HSC.

The Record of Achievement
The document listing the results of each HSC course satisfactorily completed.

Course Reports
Reports of marks, the performance scale and band descriptors for each course.

AQF Certificate in VET
Certificate or Statement of Attainment for each Board Developed VET course studied showing units of
competency successfully completed.

Course Description:
The study of Ancient History engages students in an investigation of life in early societies
based on the analysis and interpretation of physical and written remains. It offers students the
opportunity to investigate the possible motivations and actions of individuals and groups. Ancient
History stimulates students’ curiosity and imagination and enriches their appreciation of humanity
by introducing them to a range of cultures and beliefs.
The study of Ancient History is of contemporary relevance. It equips students with the skills to
analyse and challenge accepted theories and interpretations about the ancient world, especially
in light of new evidence or technologies. It requires students to analyse different interpretations
and representations of the ancient world in forms such as literature, film and museum displays.
Ancient History also raises important ethical issues associated with present and future
ownership, administration and presentation of the cultural past.
The knowledge, understanding and skills that students acquire through studying Ancient History
provide a firm foundation for further study, the world of work, active and informed citizenship, and
for lifelong learning.
The Year 11 course is structured to provide students with opportunities to develop and apply their
understanding of methods and issues involved in the investigation of the ancient past. Through
the use of archaeological and written sources, students investigate various aspects of the
ancient world, including historical sites, people, societies, events and developments.
The Year 12 course is structured to provide students with opportunities to apply their
understanding of archaeological and written sources and relevant historiographical issues in the
investigation of the ancient past
Main Topics Covered
