Bayside Council is running its popular HSC Rescue program at Rockdale Library in October that will see some library hours extended to allow more study time for students.
The library has also partnered with local community organisations to offer various stress relief activities including, yoga, pet therapy, aromatherapy and massage. Snacks will also be available.
The program has been running for the last three years and is well-received by students and their families.
The program is particularly significant this year with the COVID-19 pandemic adding additional stress and pressure on HSC students.

October 6 to 29
Monday to Thursday: 8:30am to 6:00pm
HSC Rescue Breaks will also be available on selected dates during October. Bookings are not required for these activities but waiting times may apply.
