We would like to acknowledge country and the traditional custodians of this land who are the Wodi Wodi people of the Five Islands Dreaming, Dharawal Country and the Yuin nation.

We would like to acknowledge the country on which we learn and teach, near Sandon Point, the declared Aboriginal land rich in Aboriginal history and culture.

We thank the ancestors and Elders for passing down their knowledge of country and traditions which is the reason that Aboriginal culture thrives today.

At Bulli High School, it is our responsibility to preserve and respect the integrity of this significant site for future generations.

Recommendation to study Advanced and Extension courses

Students who intend to select English Advanced, Mathematics Advanced or any Extension courses are required to obtain a recommendation from their Year 10 teacher of that subject and the Head Teacher of Mathematics or English. Science teachers will also make a recommendation for some science subjects. Forms can be collected from either the Head Teacher English or Head Teacher Mathematics.

This requirement is in response to a significant number of students in recent years selecting courses in which it has been difficult for them to achieve success. The current procedure is designed to guide students towards the most appropriate courses and, therefore, more successful outcomes.

While extenuating circumstances may override these recommendations, parents and students should carefully consider the recommendation of the teacher and Head Teacher. Students who wish to appeal against the recommendation will need to arrange an interview with Mr Neave to explain the circumstances of their selection.
