Year 10

Hello and welcome to Parkes High School Year 10. My name is Tayla Laing and I am your Year Advisor while you are at Parkes High School

You can find me in the English Staffroom, downstairs in B Block, next to B12.

Throughout the year I read your reports and see how you settle in. I am a contact person if your parents and carers need to know how to help you choose your subjects for Year 11 or to know how you are progressing.

Our goal is to make you as happy and safe at Parkes High School as possible, that way you can do your best and enjoy your time with us.

I look forward to getting to know all of you and to watch you grow and develop over the coming years.



For daily announcements, information and achievements go to our school Facebook page @ Official Parkes High School.

Year 10 students take part in the Careers Work Experience Program

Jackson enjoyed his Work experience week during term 2

Work Experience: During Term 2 a number of Year 10 students undertook the first block of Work Experience. I would like to thank the various employers and businesses who supported our students with this valuable program. Parkes Public School, Parkes East, Middleton Public, Pink Orchid Florist, Parkes Diagnostic Imaging, CSIRO Telescope, La Bella Beauty & Spa, Inline Panel & Paint, Kinsela’s Motorcycles, Parkes Early Childhood and Tuned Suspension.

You need reading, writing and maths skills for everyday life after school. This why you are required to demonstrate a minimum standard of literacy and numeracy to receive the Higher School Certificate (HSC) from 2020.

Year 10 students will sit their Minimum Standard tests during selected periods.

Please read the attached information and view the youtube videos for information about this testing.For further information please contact the school.
