Congratulations to Lachlan Gilmore of Year 11 who has been selected to attend the National Youth Science Forum in Canberra next year.

 Lachlan was nominated by his Science teachers and selected out of a pool of thousands of applications from across Australia. He is being sponsored by the Whittlesea Rotary Club.

 The forum is designed to give students a broader understanding of the diverse study and career options available in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and to encourage them to continue their studies in these fields.  

Celebrating Year 8 Excellence

The inaugural Year 8 Academic Excellence Club Gold Member Luncheon was held on Wednesday 2 August 2017. This lunch celebrated the outstanding effort and commitment that many of the Year 8 cohort have shown towards their learning. To date, each of these students have received all three academic excellence awards as they have continually demonstrated a willingness to strive for their personal best in order to achieve personal academic excellence.
