On Thursday 2nd 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. Ten students on the night presented to an audience on projects they have spent the entire year working on. The projects covered a range of topics and skills:

  • A 12,000 word novel
  • Preliminary Theological Certificate (Moore College)
  • The Bible and Aliens
  • Marketing a product
  • Quantum Theory
  • Fractal art
  • An English writing course
  • Bacteria
  • Age and its impact on conformity
  • The effects of music on study

Information was also presented by participants 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, Tournament of the Minds and the Australian Brain Bee challenge.

Awards were given to the students who participated in the:

  • Mathematics Challenge for Young Australians
  • Gateway 8 Gala Day

Parents and students were also provided with a glimpse of some of the new and exciting opportunities for 2018. Well done to all students who presented on the night. You did a terrific job!
