Sydney Technical High School is a diverse and inclusive learning environment. We understand that, especially amongst adolescents, conflict does occasionally occur. Our strong stance on anti bullying reflects this and is in accordance with our own school ethos and the NSW Department of Education's Preventing and Responding to Student Bullying in Schools Policy .

There are coordinators for Year 7 and Year 11 transition.  They are responsible for the wellbeing of new students and ensure they settle into the school.  They assist students with their curriculum and the organisational procedures.

STHS has enjoyed a long association with the Peer Support Foundation of Australia.  Each year, every student in Year 8 completes the peer support training course – an intensive two-day program that provides explicit lessons in leadership, emotional intelligence, resilience and the role of respectful relationships.  The traning gives many of our boys the opportunity to be selected as Peer Leaders.  The primary purpose of Peer Leaders is to assist with the successful transition of new Year 7 students to high school.  Starting at high school can be a challending stage in any young person’s life.  New buildings, procedures, subjects, transport routes and routines mean that having an experienced and empathetic role model from Year 9 gives our Year 7 students a supportive and connected transition experience.  It also gives our mentors an important opportunity to demonstrate leadership skills.

Peer Support

Peer Support at Sydney Technical High School consists of a series of organised peer led sessions which commence on Year 6 Orientation day and continue the following year during Terms 1 and 2 during Welfare Assembly time. The program is targeted towards Year 7 students and is led by a selected group of trained Year 9 leaders who facilitate small group sessions under the supervision of teachers. Each session is designed to help integrate our incoming Year 7 students into high school life as well as improve their mental, social and emotional wellbeing.

Transition Program

The Transition program at Sydney Technical High school allows for a smooth transition for our incoming Year 7 students as they transition from Primary into High School. The program is run by Year 7 teachers for the first two days of the school year and finishes up with a Peer Support session at the end of the first week. The topics covered in the two day transition program include; name game and mixing activities, overview of school rules and procedures, teacher contacts and there location within the school, diary familiarisation, navigating the school and local area and finally a series of study skills activities.

The school camp program is an important aspect of our students’ education strategy. Low SES students are funded to attend where required. Camps give students the opportunity to forge friendships, take risks in a safe environment, and take up physical and academic challenges. For some students in Year 7, this is the first occasion that they have left the family home. The program targets the different maturation levels of students.

  • Year 7 camp at Point Wolstoncroft provides team building and social bonding for students from 81 different primary schools.
  • Year 9 ‘Great Aussie Bushcamp’ at Hawks Nest with ‘commando challenge’.
  • Year 11 camp at Narrabeen. This is a three day crossroads camp including guest presenters and fun challenging activities in a safe and controlled environment.
  • Band camp is an excellent curriculum camp for 100 students passionate about making music from all years in the school. It takes place at the end of Semester 1, before the Musicale Concert. Students attend with staff and music tutors and guest conductors and then return ready to play for the annual concert. In 2014 the camp was held at Stanwell Tops Conference Centre.
