  • 27% of participating students attained Merit Certificates in the Australian Informatics Competition
  • 35% of participating students received a Merit Award, which included three Distinctions and 12 Credits, in the Big Science Competition
  • 54% of participating students received a Merit Award, with two students placing above the 90th percentile, in the Australian Mathematics Competition

Meanwhile, towards the end of 2014, 20 Year 10 Science students engaged in an International STEM project with Panyaworakun School in Bangkok, Thailand.

The 6-week project (including a three-day camp), involved students from both schools sharing and analyzing water samples (Murray Darling Basin in Australia and the Chao Phraya in Thailand) in an atmosphere of intercultural understanding and collaborative learning. Emphasis was on sharing through various technologies and exchanging information about their respective cultures.
