Australian Science Olympiad Summer Schools 2019
Congratulations to Adam Robey who has once again been selected to attend this prestigious summer school in Canberra, as a result of his outstanding achievement in the science Olympiad exams. Adam will be hoping to gain selection for the International Science Olympiads being held in Thailand next year, and the school would like to wish him every success.
Earlier this year, the national Science Olympiad Exams were held. These were competitive exams based on the senior science courses, in which more than six thousand students competed to earn a place at the Australian Science Olympiads Summer School. This summer school is held at the Australian National University and is an intensive training program held over three weeks, where students also compete to earn a place in representing Australia at the International Science Olympiads.
One of our Year 11 students, Adam Robey has achieved highly in Chemistry and Biology, as well as Physics and Earth and Environmental Science. He has gained a placement at the summer school, one of the 91 students to do so from around Australia. The summer school will be held in January 2019, at the Australian National University.

WWI Honour Board Rededication
On Friday 23 November, our school was privileged to host NSW Premier Hon. Gladys Berejiklian at our WW1 Honour Board Rededication Assembly. Fittingly, on such a significant occasion, our entire school community did a wonderful job demonstrating the absolute best that our school has to offer. Former students, staff, parents and distinguished guests, all spoke with such pride and admiration of the efforts of our students whose respectful conduct throughout the day was simply outstanding.
The Angelo Anestis Aquatic Centre – Bexley hosted the annual Sydney Tech swimming carnival. Under blue skies we had the best attended carnival this century according to Mr Grinham, and it was a chance for our swimmers to showcase their talent early in the season. The SRC had students dress in house colours and this added a lot of fun to the event. Congratulations to Eugene Waetford who broke the 200m freestyle with a time of 2:25.00 and Russel Koh the 50m Freestyle record with a time of 26.03. Thanks to all staff for the smooth running of the carnival.
