Tours for parents and students considering enrolling at Princes Hill Secondary College in year 7 in 2015 have commenced. Tours take place on Wednesday and Thursday mornings and require a booking on 9389 0600. Tours will take place for the remainder of term one.

An information night will be held at the college for students considering enrolling at Princes Hill Secondary College in year 7 in 2015. This will be held on the 30th of April with the first session at 4pm and the second at 7pm. No booking is required for this event.


Attention Year 12 students and parents: UMAT

Important information for students considering applying for medical and related tertiary courses for 2014.

The UMAT is a series of tests that are required as a pre-requisite for a number of medical and allied health tertiary courses in Australia. Applications are now open and close on June 6, 5pm. The exam day is July 30. There are 3 sections in the 180 minute exam.

UMAT is developed by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) on behalf of the UMAT Consortium universities.  The test is used specifically to assist with the selection of students into the medicine, dentistry and health science degree programs at undergraduate level at the universities listed on the website. 

For further information about the UMAT and application procedures go to:

Students who are considering applying for medical or related courses for 2014 must check whether they need to sit the UMAT. There is a $240 (concession $140) fee to register for the UMAT. This fee includes preparation materials and practice papers.

Please note that PHSC does not administer the UMAT, so students must ensure they investigate whether they need apply.

For your information:

There are a number of UMAT preparation courses available, however UMAT (ACER) states that they are not necessary. Many of these UMAT preparation courses are questionable at best. Medentry is the only preparation course about which we have had reasonable feed back, however it is very expensive.  PHSC does not endorse this course.

To reduce PHSC’s carbon footprint and to effect positive student-driven changes in PHSC


Better decisions are made in a school if everyone who is affected by those decisions in involved in making them in some way.

Students know things that others (teachers, parents, administrators) don’t.


Students who are passionate about making a difference (with particular emphasis to the environment). To keep it manageable, membership of the council will be capped to twelve. Anyone from years 7-12 can apply.

Instrumental Music

The music program at Princes Hill Secondary College caters for a wide variety of genres to enable the students to experience a diverse range of musical styles and techniques. The students have the opportunity to learn an instrument at school and join a number of ensembles suitable for their instrument and preferences. Students are very welcome to join an ensemble if they are learning an instrument outside school. Click here for more information and an enrollment form.

Instrumental music lessons for 2013 will conclude on Friday 6th December. Please ensure all hired instruments are retuned by this date for servicing. If a student wishes to hire an instrument over the school holidays they will still need to return their instrument, then to go to the music office to obtain a hire form.
