Year 12 2020 at Maitland High School is an outstanding group of mature and hardworking students who are striving to achieve their best in the wide range of subjects and topics.

Year 12 students have taken on mentoring roles for junior students, some of our school leaders and our Prefects attended the Year 7 Camp at the Great Aussie Bush Camp in an effort to build relationships. There is also some positive interactions taking place in classes with classroom visits by our school captains. We are in the process of coming up with innovative ideas to fund raise and support community causes and the strong sense of citizenship of this year group will no doubt see these causes benefit immensely.

The annual ‘Teachers vs Students Competition’ where Year 12 compete against staff representatives in a variety activities kicked off last year with the students taking out a close victory in the Volleyball match. The teachers exacted some revenge with victories in the swimming race and “floatie race” at our school swimming carnival early in 2020. There are various activities planned for the year with the winner taking out the converted trophy and bragging rights. 

A highlight of the year for Year 12 is the annual Swimming Carnival where they get to dress up and have a relaxed day filled with water fun and ‘floaties’. Students take great effort to coordinate their outfits to dress up for the occasion.

As the HSC course intensifies, students are encouraged to maintain their focus in class and work consistently towards achieving their goals. In these extraordinary times students are recommended to continue to monitor closely current situations relating to their HSC. This can be done by accessing NESA via:

It is quite usual for Year 12 to be feeling stress at this time of year and current global events may also be adding to those feelings. All students are reminded to seek support if required. There are numerous avenues of support available, including classroom teachers, Year Advisor and Deputy Principal. Our Student Support Officer and counsellors are available for stress management strategies. There are many links listed on the MHS Canvas page with a dedicated Wellbeing sections which has information and contacts listed for essential services available at our school.
