My congratulations to Adam Robey who has 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

One of our Year 10 students Adam Robey has achieved highly, gaining Distinctions in
Chemistry and Biology, as well as a High Distinction in Physics and Earth and
Environmental Science. He has also 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 2018, at the Australian National University.
