Study sessions

All students at Wyndham College have several study study sessions a week. During these sessions it is expected that students will make use of the College Library, Learning Hub or school grounds to complete school work or study. Teaching staff may be available for consultation by appointment in the top of 'B' block. 

Students may come to school late or leave early if they have a study period first session or last session, but otherwise must remain on school grounds during the day. Students must use their ID card to swipe in and out of the college if arriving late or leaving early.

HSC Hub

The brand new HSC hub contains high-quality, on-demand resources for students to help them prepare for their exams.

Aligned to NSW syllabuses, the hub is a carefully curated central repository for items created by the NSW Department of Education, including Aurora College and WooTube. There is also third party material available.  

Find video lessons and other resources for your HSC subjects. Select a learning area to browse or use the search bar to drill down to specific material.

New material is being added regularly from both the department and external providers to make sure that you have the support you need this year.

Students should follow the advice of their teachers when choosing material.​


Goal Hub

Goalhub is a Learning Relationship Management Platform that enables individuals to build resilience in partnership with their support networks. The platform empowers students to determine their education, training and employment pathways through goal setting, personalised learning, planning, coaching and mentoring.

Goalhub enables an individual to be at the centre of their learning and employment pathway. Students should use their school email address as their username to log on then the password is "goalhub". This password should be changed immediately in the edit profile tab.

It’s easy in Year 11 & 12 to only focus on school, but if you’re only thinking about HSC goal setting for school, then you run the risk of burning out. When setting goals use the 4 catagories:

  • Academic
  • Health & Wellbeing
  • Family & Friends
  • Carers


ClickView films and documentaries

ClickView provides online streaming of films and documentaries.

The school has purchased this subscription to ensure that students have access to high quality HSC films and documentaries listed in the syllabus.

Audio visual content is also available for research, extension and enrichment of the curriculum. Students and staff may log on to their own personal ClickView accounts through ClickView Online using their school username, email and password. 


After school or holiday workshops and tutorials

To further assist students' preparation for the HSC, many teachers volunteer their valuable time to facilitate additional lessons,  workshops and tutorials at Wyndham College after school and during the holidays. Whilst attendance is not compulsory, it is recommended. These workshops constitute excellent preparation for the HSC trial examinations and the HSC examinations.

Workshops will be running at the school, with times determined by staff availability.  Parents are responsible for student transport to and from the school for these workshops. School buses will not operate.

The starting and ending times for each workshop are subject to change and students should be guided by their teachers with regard to the duration of these workshops.

We would like to acknowledge the commitment of these teachers towards their students, as these additional lessons are above the teaching award requirement.

Please read Wyndham Whispers newsletters for times and dates as well as reading student daily notices on Sentral and checking the Wyndham College Facebook page.
