High School Advanced Learning Open Night

On Thursday 1nd November, William Carey held its annual High School Advanced Learning Open Night.

The night provided numerous demonstrations of the broad skills and interests of our High School students. On the night, fourteen students presented projects that they have worked on this year, to members of the school community. The following images are screenshots of the presentations or artwork made by the students. The projects covered a range of topics and skills:

  • Marine Biology: Rock Platforms
  • Writing a novel
  • Biology and Behaviour in Psychology
  • Creating a movie
  • Learning a programming language
  • Creating a work of art
  • Creating a physical fitness program
  • The Physics of Music
  • Kinetic Energy Recovery Systems (KERS)
  • Learning Japanese

Information was also presented about the many current extra and co-curricular opportunities that were available to all High School students throughout the year such as the TAS Forensic Science camp, Philosophy Club, Gateway 8, Tournament of the Minds and the Australian Brain Bee challenge.

Parents and students were also provided with a glimpse of some of the new and exciting opportunities for 2019 and information about a new initiative for next year, the CS Lewis Advanced Learning Program, a withdrawal class for gifted students.

     

Well done to all students who presented on the night. You all did a terrific job!
