High Achievers Program
The High Achievers program recognises those students from Years 8, 9 and 10 who are performing above standard across their subjects, and who show a strong commitment and enthusiasm for their learning. The students are selected as part of the program through their subject marks, in addition to recommendations from their teachers.
This year sees the continuation of the highly successful Monash Champions project for some of our Year 9 and 10 High Achievers. Students involved in this project work in partnership with Monash University student mentors and have the opportunity to research and deliver a presentation to peers and also to other schools on a topic that they are passionate about. The program also fosters student leadership, team work and organisational skills.
All High Achievers are strongly encouraged to participate in the upcoming Australian Maths Competition and ICAS English Competition for Term 3. These tests, run at the school, are designed by independent organisations and allow students to demonstrate their skills beyond that generally afforded in the regular classroom.
A new Academic Wall has been added to the Library at the school, showcasing student achievement through high Quality work, across many subjects, and importantly, work that the students themselves are proud of.
High Achiever excursions for 2018 include the Melbourne Writers Festival, where students can participate in a range of workshops, and Scienceworks, which offers authentic hands on learning experiences not normally available in the regular classroom.
