Sounds like you're doing great work on representing the chapter and
Wikimedia. Here're some of my thoughts.

A bit more generally: the HSC is limited to NSW only, right? It would
be nice to see it covered in Queensland or Victoria as well, but I'm
not savvy on the inner workings of the education system. I probably
won't represent ourselves that well <.<

This might go further down the line but mentioning [[Wikipedia:Five
pillars]] would work as a good intro to taking part with Wikipedia
more deeply.

Page 22/23 (the diagram of the anatomy of an article) can probably be
a good base for something to cover Wikipedia in that joint publication
with CCau.
