Students Caleb Poole, Elizabeth Sexton and David Brown recently competed in the Science Olympiads and received top marks- with David and Elizabeth both selected to join specialist programs.
The Science Olympiad is a two-hour exam that students can choose to undertake, allowing gifted science minds to extend their learning beyond what is possible in the classroom.
Charlotte Knight, 15, was selected to join Curious Minds - a program aimed at inspiring and mentoring young women in STEM subjects.
She said the program had allowed her to consider a wide range of career opportunities in science and was looking forward to being mentored by women working in STEM fields.
