Dear Year 12 Parents


Many thanks to those of you who have registered to join our HEO parent webinar on Wednesday 1 April 2020 at 8.30amPlease find the link to join the session HERE.

As parents can play an important role in a student’s HE journey, we thought it is the ideal time to touch base with you and explain what students should be doing at this critical stage of the university application process.  We will be covering various issues including but not limited to:

  • Importance of university research, narrowing choices and looking closely at possible majors and career fields
  • Deadlines and timelines
  • Admissions tests
  • Competitive applications with early deadlines (Oxbridge, Med/Dent/Vet, Law, Ivy Leagues, Engineering in Canada)
  • Limit of university applications
  • Gap Year students
  • How you can support your child through this process

The webinar will also offer you the platform to ask questions and/or raise any particular issues of concern.  We are also happy to inform you that Brian McCann, our VP and IB Co-ordinator, will also be joining us to answer any questions related to IB exams.

For those of you who have not yet registered but would still like to join us, you are welcome to do so by using the link above. 

We look forward to talking with you soon.

Kind regards
