Year 12

And  just like that 13 years of schooling is over. Year 12 have now officially completed their HSC, with the external HSC examinations concluding on November 4, 2022. We know that the students have tried their best and will now leave to conquer bigger and better things. Please save December 15 in your calendars for our annual Year 12 HSC results BBQ. Students and parents/caterers are invited back to the Snr Cafe for one last time to enjoy a BBQ breakfast and acknowledge and celebrate their achievements. 

One last task for year 12 - once the HSC exams are completed year 12 can officially ’sign out’ of school. Please bring with you any texts, borrowed library books, loan devices etc (anything that is property of MVHS). Come to the attendance office where Mrs Bullen or Mrs Moore will assist you. 

In preparation for December 15, a quote I am extremely fond of (especially when getting HSC results) is …

“Your worth as a person can NEVER be measured by a number”


An immense THANK YOU to East Cessnock Bowling Club who have gone above and beyond to ensure our students had a first class venue and conditions to complete their HSC examinations. Please show your support and appreciation to ECBC how and when you can.

The Year 12 formal is on November 16th (commencing at 5:30 pm) at Peterson House, Hunter Valley. It would be wonderful to see family and friends for photos before the event.

Year 8

Our wonderful and beautiful Year 8 students have been hard at it from the beginning and throughout Term 4 completing their final assessments for the year. They also participated in thanking the teaching staff at Mount View High School on World Teachers Day (October 28). These students were keen to say “thanks”” and take their hats off to the hard work and dedication of MVHS staff.

“Measure twice, cut once” (Anonymous) 

Year 8 are hard at work with the tools to develop their own stationary holder in Industrial Technology - Timber. Mr Newman’s life lessons of “safety never takes a holiday” and “measure twice, cut once” is being ingrained.


“Sport is life” (Ted Lasso)

Whilst other students were whittling away in Industrial Technology - Timber, some Year 8 students have been perfecting their spatial awareness and proprioception skills in Volleyball and Badminton. The dig and set is being utlised efficiently with our badminton players perfecting the drop shot.

“No One is born a great cook, one learns by doing” (Julia Child) 

At the other end of the school, Mr Glover’s Year 8 Technology manadatory students are busy getting their Heston Blumenthal on preparing homemade hamburgers. Be sure to ask your child to have a night in the kitchen preparing the evening meal.

PCYC Program

This term, a group of Year 7 and 8 students are participating in a modified version of Fit For Life each Tuesday morning at the Cessnock PCYC. Students are learning the basics of personal training (PT) and fitness as they are put through a range of physical activities and sport sessions.
