Welcome to the new format for the Woolooware High Careers Newsletter. Please note that the information provided on this page is not exhaustive. There are many opportunities available for students and we encourage that you regularly check the websites of the Tertiary Institutions that are of interest to you.

Where possible, the format of the newsletter has the Year 12 specific information toward the end. Information for all students is at the beginning of the newsletter. However, it is advised that students in year 10 and 11 familiarise themselves with scholarship, early offer programs and the likes so that you are aware of the processes and what you can start to do now to give yourself the best possible chance when you are in Year 12.
