General News

Term 2 is well and truly underway. As usual, it will be an exciting term with plenty of special events and things to do. One of our CORE Values is 'Opportunities'; we hope that each of our students will get involved this term with the countless opportunities that we offer here at Eaglehawk Secondary College.

From Monday the 29th of May, students will be completing an Attitudes to School survey, offered by the Department of Education and Training. The feedback given to us by students helps us to improve your child's schooling experience. Please click here for more information. 

Just a reminder to parents/carers of year 7 students that the second round of immunisations is coming up on Wednesday 31st May - in this visit, students will receive 1 dose of Gardasil (Human Papillomavirus). The final round of immunisations will be held on Friday 27th October - in this visit, students will receive the final dose of Gardasil as well as the Chickenpox vaccine.

As of the 29th May 2017, Homework Club will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays in our college library, until the end of the term. This is a great chance for students to come along and receive some assistance with their homework from our friendly team member Steph.
