HSC Metro – Live @ the Warehouse
Dear Year 12 2021,
You keep taking the hits, don’t you?
First, Year 11 was messed up. Now, you’ve kicked off your HSC year and things still haven’t quite settled down. Last year was disrupted and now you’ve got to regroup and keep pushing forward to get through the HSC year with uncertainty still floating around…
It’s not easy.
Come April you’ll be halfway through Year 12 and you might be feeling like you didn’t get a real chance to develop some critical skills in Year 11 that are now impacting your HSC pathway. Or, you might be doing fine, but could use a week to focus, knuckle down and study with HSC teachers available for tutoring.
We hear you.
With the prompting of God, the support of SU NSW and other trained teachers, we have decided to use this as an opportunity to serve young people in the city by providing the 2021 Year 12s a week to recalibrate and engage with Jesus.
We are keen to provide a positive and creative environment where students have the opportunity to look ahead and look back to fill in the gaps, so you can leap forward into the future.
At the same time, it’d be great to have a week to think about where you want to go in life. Who are you? What do you think about God? And what does God think about you?
That’s what’ll be happening at ‘HSC Metro – Live at the Warehouse’ in April.
If any of that resonates with you, we would love to see you there !!!

Best ten days of my year

Alison Laird & Joey Vergara
Alison is excited about how this camp is an opportunity for incoming Year 12s to catch their breath, focus and set themselves up well for their HSC year. Alison considers it a privilege to be able to help Year 12s get into the right 'headspace' for school and 'heartspace' with God. Alison was a team member and director of Windang SUFM across 2004-2011. After working in Sydney Schools Ministry with SU in 2007, Alison has been an English/EALD teacher in Sydney public schools since 2009, motivated to "Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the LORD for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper." HSC Metro - Bring it on!
Joeboy has the heart to help the HSC students to cope with their current workload as well as establish a good balance between in their life. He has previously held HSC Cram Sesh events from Punchbowl Baptist Church in 1998-1999, took up the call to pastor a church from 2004-2015 and is now a full time Science Teacher focusing on Chemistry. Joeboy is eager to impart life skills to participants and paraphrasing Joshua 1:9 “Boldy go, where no one has gone before”.
