Aurora College started as the state’s virtual selective school servicing rural and remote students in 2015, but has grown to encompass a non-selective Stage 6 cohort, as well as a selective opportunity class cohort for Year 6 students. The aim is to allow students to enjoy a depth of study that was previously only available in metropolitan areas or boarding schools.

Lessons are delivered online synchronously to students in their school, by teachers in similar settings. Residential Camps are held twice yearly to deliver practical lessons, specialist excursions, and provide social opportunities for students to meet their peers.

Aurora College offers a range of additional programs for our community. We partner with a range of educational, scientific and cultural institutions to deliver Masterclasses for our students, such as Astrophysics talk by Dr Brad Tucker. Other sessions are available to all Public School students, such as the eSafety webinars run in conjunction with the Office of the eSafety Commissioner, or the HSC Study Days program that delivers examination advice from experts, teachers, and HSC markers.

Safer Internet Day 2023 - Session 1

Safer Internet Day is a global event that brings together communities, families, schools and organisations from more than 200 countries to help create safer online spaces. This worldwide initiative is celebrating 20 years in 2023, making it a great time to reflect as well as look forward. Technology has evolved dramatically in the past two decades and the benefits have been huge. These developments have also exposed us to many risks with real-world impacts, making online safety awareness even more important. That's why we are calling on Australians to Connect. Reflect. Protect. Connect safely and with purpose – by keeping apps and devices secure and using social media in positive ways. Reflect before we act – by taking a moment to consider how what we do and say online may affect others. Protect ourselves and others by taking action – by telling family, friends or colleagues about eSafety and how we can help. By doing these simple things, we can work towards making every day a Safer Internet Day.
