Hills Adventist College, NSW
We are very proud of Josie Jakovac, our Year 10 student who is currently representing herself, our College, and Australia at the International Science & Engineering Fair (ISEF) in Pittsburgh, USA. Today - American time - Josie was interviewed by Channel 9 to explain her project on Ferrofluid. We wish Josie the best of luck as her project is judged. As far as we are concerned she is already a winner! Josie is up against 1700 other students from all over the world. Check out some of her journey at ISEF.

Hills Adventist College is the most loving, nurturing and caring school environment I have ever experienced. I cannot speak highly enough of the teachers, who have an amazing capacity to make you feel welcome and valued in the school. I have met all my daughters’ teachers, and each one has given me an accurate account of her learning and ability. They always have a smile and are so sensitive to the students needs. They seem to genuinely love their work! Regardless of how they make me feel, they have allowed my daughter to grow and flourish academically and personally. They have instilled renewed confidence in her, and teach that you just need to keep trying and give it your best. Importantly, they back this up with practical suggestions and tools so students are equipped to “keep trying and give it their best”.
It was very important for us to find a school that reinforced the values we teach at home. In fact, Alexandra was the one who came to us at the end of Year 8 and said she could not continue attending the school she was at, because it was changing her as a person. It was a very mature observation for her to make, and painful for us as parents to hear. When I went on a tour of the college I wasn’t sure what she was thinking. I was impressed and really liked what I heard and saw. She asked lots of questions. Afterwards we went out for hot chocolate and a debrief. She was adamant that this was the place for her. She begged me not to send her to some other schools we were considering. In her heart, she had found the right place for her. And she was absolutely right!

School is a little bit like a roller-coaster, there are times when there is a lot of work and assessments, but the teachers are always available to help and support us through these intense times. Then there are times when the work is less intense where we can focus on relationships, and that is pretty cool, because it’s very easy to make friends, because everyone is so nice.

“Hills Adventist College was an absolute stand out when my husband and I commenced researching high school options for our son. We had attended nine open days at various schools within the LGA. We were so amazed with the positive and passionate attitude displayed by the schools executive, teachers, support staff and students. We were also impressed by the extra curricular activities available to students. The college has always made us feel very welcome and part of the school community. Our son has definitely benefitted from the well-structured and resourced curriculum which is delivered in a safe and nurturing environment by caring teachers.
The morality and respectful atmosphere at Hill Adventist College also serves to teach our children to be polite, respectful and understanding members of our community. We are extremely happy that our son has been given the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful school in building a solid foundation for his future. I would recommend Hills Adventist College to any parent or family looking for a well-rounded educational experience for their children. Well done Hills Adventist College.”
