Conquering your Mount HSC
At CoWorks, we often use the metaphor that the HSC is like a mountain. We break the mountain up into four basecamps – term 1, term 2, term 3, term 4. After you’ve hit the basecamps you get the opportunity to summit the mountain with the HSC exams.
Through building the correct habits and behaviours during the basecamp climbs, you will reach the summit much easier. These foundations are things like planning, developing grit, taking responsibility and owning your HSC, and pushing your comfort zone.
We acknowledge that this is one climb, one mountain, one challenge of many during a lifetime. This is an opportunity for students to develop themselves into an accomplished mountain climber. The skills, behaviours, habits and work ethic created during this mountain climb, will allow them to conquer bigger mountains in the future. This is an opportunity to learn and grow.
At the moment, with the Sydney lockdown coinciding with the Year 12 Trial Examinations, students are getting hit with high winds and challenging weather as they approach the summit. They need to be adaptable and flexible – utilising all the skills and habits they have nurtured and developed throughout the year to weather the storm and make it to the summit!
After all, without struggle there is no progress!
Join Jesse and Fergus as they discuss this integral metaphor, and the foundational behaviours that it represents.
