The final countdown has begun as the 'business end' of the school year comes to an end and final preparations for the HSC exams get underway.
Written exams begin Monday 16 October with the two unit English paper and conclude on Friday 3 November with Visual Arts.
Executive Principal, Hastings Secondary College Kylee Owen said "The first exam often brings many emotions and in the coming weeks we encourage our HSC students to keep a healthy balance including regular sleep, healthy diet, exercise and don't sweat the small things."
"I would like to congratulate our HSC students on their leadership and contribution to our college. We are very proud of you and know that you will give your best.
