Fabulous results in academic competitions

Every year, as part of our Gifted and Talented program, students enter a variety of academic competitions that focus on assessing their ability to use higher-order thinking and problem solving skills. Our students enter the Mathematics, Science, English, History, Geography and Digital Technologies competitions. This allows them to challenge themselves and compete against others throughout the state or nation. Our students have achieved some outstanding results this year, as always. Special mention must be made of Alyssa Collins’ effort in the nation-wide Geography Competition organised by the Australian Geography Teachers Association. Alyssa scored in the top 1% of the candidature, of which there were over 70,000 participants from government and non-government schools. Congratulations, Alyssa, on such a fabulous result.

Hannah nominated for ArtExpress 2019

We have been thrilled and excited to hear of Galston High School’s Hannah West and her achievement in being nominated for possible inclusion in ArtExpress 2019. Her work The Fears That Control Us has been put aside as an exemplar of high achievement in Visual Arts. It is a great achievement to be nominated for possible inclusion with the process now requiring curators to select which works will hang in galleries across the state. Good luck to Hannah for this next stage of selection.
