Science Competition results

Abigail spoke about the National Science Quiz held during the June exam block.
The purpose of the quiz is to allow students to see how their science skills are developing. Each student receives detailed feedback about their progress on a variety of science skills. Also, there is the opportunity for students who perform particularly well to receive awards.
All students are to be congratulated for their willingness to participate in this valuable activity, whether they received an award or not.
Our whole-school results are compared with results from students from other schools across all of Australia, not just Queensland. The average results for our Year 9 and 10 students were within 2% of the national average and the average for the Year 11 was 1% above the Australian average.
Two students achieved a Distinction, 28 obtained a Credit and 21 were awarded with Merit certificates. Both of these groups had 6 more students than last year. Those students receiving Distinction and Credit awards will be presented today.
The following students received 'Credit' awards
  • Year 12: Tom Lister, Kimberley Ward
  • Year 11: Adam Ryan, Michael Whant
