Congratulations to our Year 12 2020 who have now completed all HSC exams. What a year to be completing the HSC! Our Year 12 have shown tremendous resilience and maintained a positive mindset, despite the obstacles they have faced. Already some of our students have been offered early entry into University courses. Congratulations again Year 12, we are very proud of you all.
Presentation Day 2020
Whilst life is returning to normal, we are still bound by certain restrictions that will impact how we finish up 2020.
Our Presentation Day is scheduled for Friday 11 December although, we are not able to invite families to be a part of this due to the 4 square metre rule. Our hall is only able to hold 264 people under these guidelines. Throughout the day we will hold a Presentation Assembly for recipients only, in each year group. We will ensure to livestream the event for those who wish to watch from home.
We have been speaking with students about the importance of attending school every day possible. Students should have an attendance rate of for more than 90% and this equates to no more than 5 days absent per term or 20 days per year. Of course, we encourage students to have higher attendance than this although, we understand that we all do become ill and need to stay at home. We will be celebrating over 90% attendance for Term 4 in Week 9 of this term through our Quality Learners award. Remember, EVERYDAY COUNTS.
Important dates to remember
Please note school finishes for all students on Wednesday 16 December.
In 2021, Years 7, 11 and 12 return on Friday 29 January and the remainder of the school on Monday 1 February.

Sydney Region Excellence in VET awards 2020
Beverly Hills Girls High had 2 award winners in the recent VET awards night for the Sydney Region.
Award winners have demonstrated excellence in all facets of their VET course throughout the two years including competencies and work placements.
This year’s awards were conducted through a zoom meeting due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Congratulations to the winners
- Stephanie L – Entertainment Industry
- Tung Linh (Andrea) H – Information and Digital Technology
Congratulations should also go to Cassandra Santos, finalist for Hospital Kitchen Operations.
We have been thrilled and excited to hear of Beverly Hills Girls High School's Widad N and Nouralhuda A and their achievement in being selected for inclusion in ArtExpress 2021. Widad’s work Misplaced and Nouralhuda’s work Generations has been put aside as an exemplar of high achievement in Visual Arts. It is a great achievement to be nominated for inclusion, with the process now requiring curators to select their works, which will be hung in galleries across the state. The student's body of work is not only a representation of hours of work across Year 12, but the years they have spent cultivating their skills from an early age to ensure they would achieve their personal best.
Planning for 2021 is well under way with subject selections having taken place and staff allocations being considered. We have started work on our 2021 – 2024 school plan and reviewing what programs and procedures will drive school improvement going forward. I am really excited by the prospect of new students starting next year and have been delighted to hear that students are choosing Beverly Hills Girls High School as their school of choice. This is validation for the great work our staff are doing and the positive feedback I am receiving in the community.
School Captains 2021
I would like to congratulate our recently elected School Captain Helen I and Vice-captain Hayley H . I look forward to working with these leaders in 2021.
