HKCC | Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Community College Inc

Welcome back

HKCC is looking forward to welcoming back students and trainers for face-to-face learning soon with the easing of COVID lockdown restrictions.

We are carefully working through the NSW Public Health Orders and the NSW Department of Education’s directions – your patience is appreciated.

For now, HKCC will remain closed with a view to gradually re-open our premises to selected classes. As advised by the education department’s Return to Vocational Education and Training (VET) Guidelines 2021, we will continue to deliver content online and offer face-to-face training where it is essential particularly for those critical and practical industries, where online or virtual training cannot take place.

We will provide information on the progress of re-opening class sessions. HKCC is committed to minimising risks and keeping a safe environment for everyone.
