Picton High School would like to welcome our future students and families

Moving into high school is an extremely daunting process, not just for students, but also for the families. Picton High School aims to make the move as smooth as possible with an extremely thorough transition program that aims to provide our future students with a positive outlook on coming to high school.

Deputy in Charge and Year Advisors

Year 7 Deputy: Ms Linda Vella

Year Advisor: Ms Angelina Vujicic

Assistant Year Advisor: Ms Caitlyn Dennehy

The year advisor and the assistant year advisor will become two very important people to your child, especially through this transition stage. These people, along with the deputy in charge of the year group will also be a point of contact for you when it comes to any questions about areas of high school, whether it be uniform, welfare or special needs provisions. All 3 people are contactable by ringing the school.

UNIFORM

We are committed to the wearing of a school uniform. A school uniform helps to develop a student's sense of belonging and enhances the health and safety of students when involved in sporting and practical lessons within the school curriculum. In accordance with Workplace Health and Safety laws, all students must wear fully black, covered leather footwear to school each day to prevent feet from damage caused by accidents such as falling objects or chemical spillages. These shoes must have a flat, solid sole.

Year 7 Camp 2020 

Feb 19 - 21 2020

Year 7 at Picton High School is given the opportunity to attend the Great Aussie Bush Camp in their first term, located at Kincumber (one hour north of Sydney). This new facility is situated on 40 hectares of un-spoiled bush land with 600m of broad water frontage. The camp is a perfect opportunity for students to connect and form new relationships with both their peers and their teachers. Students participate in outdoor recreation based recreation activities that are fun, challenging, diverse, relevant and memorable. Some of the activities that students may be involved in include: archery, canoeing, giant swing, high ropes, lost island, rock climbing, survivor challenge and night based activities. Its facilities include cabin accommodation, dining hall, full size rugby oval and night time supervision.

More information about the camp and the activities will be provided at orientation days, where a permission note will be distributed and parents will be given the opportunity to pay the deposit.
