Empowering Young Men Through Innovation

Telephone02 9587 1770


James Cook Boys Technology High School is committed to educating young men to be ethically guided critical thinkers who are innovative life long learners. Each student is challenged to achieve his personal best through learning experiences within an inclusive and caring environment.

The school motto, Ignotum Quaerite means ' seek the unknown' or in simpler terms, always take the opportunity to discover and learn about new things.

On Saturday 10 September James Cook Boys Technology High School P&C is running the sausage sizzle at Rockdale Bunnings.  The funds raised will go towards improvements to the STEM garden and the school quadrangle.

If you would like to help on the day please contact the P&C via email jcbhspc@gmail.com or phone/text 0419 213 038.

Please come along and support our school and get a great sausage-on-a-roll!

Dear JCBTHS Parents,

Welcome to Term 2 - 2022

Change to Covid Close Contact guidelines

Students and staff who are close contacts can attend school as long as they wear a mask, RAT test negative everyday and have no cold or flu like symptoms. You must contact the school office if your son is identified as a close contact.

If a student tests positive, they must isolate for 7 days. Upon returning they need to be symptom free and wear a mask for 3 days when they return to school,  parents will need to notify the school.

As with last term, no one can be on the premises if they have cold and flu like symptoms.

If you require additional RAT test kits, please have your son attend the student services office to collect them.

If you have any questions, please contact the school office on 9587-1770

Kind Regards

Mark Marciniak
