HSC teachers day 2012

For teachers from low SES school communities

The Art Gallery of NSW aims to support teachers from Low Socio-economic Status School Communities by providing information on our current programs and resources, as well as focusing on the 2012 HSC Visual Arts written examination. The day will specifically investigate questions from the 2012 HSC paper and provide the opportunity to familiarise teachers with the Gallery’s collection as a valuable resource for the Stage 6 Syllabus.

The day will include discussions led by education experts at the Gallery.
