Year 9/10 Engineering Students 3rd Place at Science and Engineering Challenge

Last Thursday 24 October, the two Year 9/10 engineering classes competed against six other Canberra schools in the Science and Engineering Challenge, run by the University of Newcastle at Parliament House. The students divided into eight smaller teams and completed a variety of challenges through the day. With several high scores and a lot of enthusiasm and creativity, they came away with overall third place. We're looking forward to participating in this excellent challenge again in the future!

Student Achievement - Jorga Jongeneel's role investing the Governor General as Chief Scout of Australia

During the holidays, Jorja Jongeneel (Year 7) had the privilege of being selected as one of a small group of Scouts who invested the Governor General, His Excellency General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd), as Chief Scout of Australia. The ceremony was held at Government House on 2 October and Jorja had the honour of presenting the Governor General with his name badge. This event is also special as it only happens around every 5 years when Australia has a new Governor General. #mericipride
