Congratulations to Adam Robey who has once again been selected to attend this prestigious summer school in Canberra, as a result of his outstanding achievement in the science Olympiad exams. Adam will be hoping to gain selection for the International Science Olympiads being held in Thailand next year, and the school would like to wish him every success.

Earlier this year, the national Science Olympiad Exams were held. These were competitive exams based on the senior science courses, in which more than six thousand students competed to earn a place at the Australian Science Olympiads Summer School. This summer school is held at the Australian National University and is an intensive training program held over three weeks, where students also compete to earn a place in representing Australia at the International Science Olympiads.

One of our Year 11 students, Adam Robey has achieved highly in Chemistry and Biology, as well as Physics and Earth and Environmental Science. He has gained a placement at the summer school, one of the 91 students to do so from around Australia. The summer school will be held in January 2019, at the Australian National University.

"Every individual has the right to realise himself: that is to fully develop the power and capacities, physical, mental, moral and spiritual; with which nature endowed him."
