SRC | Extension & Enrichment


Our SRC group have been busy working on ideas to use our recently acquired YouthFest grant money for RUOK? week. We are currently looking into incursion ideas to support health and wellbeing throughout the college. 

The SRC are trying to plan some sporting events, wellbeing focused activities and fun lunchtime sessions to help people feel good and connect to the community.

We will let the school community know more information in the coming weeks, so a reminder to students to check in with their MG reps and SRC members about what’s happening!

Big Science Competition

In May, forty-nine Elevation science students participated in the Big Science Competition (BSC) for the first time. Australian Science Innovation tested their science knowledge and problem-solving skills through questions which were set in real-life contexts. Well done to students for Aiming High and representing our school and thank you to Dr Beach and Mr Haberman for facilitating this opportunity for challenge! Students are encouraged to keep engaging with extension activities in class to develop critical thinking in Science. 

Congratulations to Harjas in 9D and Omar in 10E for receiving a Distinction result, placing in the top 15% of the nation.

Special mentions also go to students who achieved a Credit:

  • Keerti 7B
  • Ahmad 7D
  • Orion 8C

Logic Capstone Projects

The Semester 1 extension Mathematics class, Logic, ended with a celebration of student projects centered around mathematical investigations and financial literacy. Students had been working collaboratively on research questions across Term 2, applying Mathematical concepts and processes to real-life contexts. They presented their findings on a broad range of interesting topics, including artificial intelligence, winning the lottery and financial planning for pets and holidays.

The panellists, Dr Beach, Mr Burke and Ms Hu, were impressed at the level of creativity and teamwork exhibited from our Year 7 and 8 Logic-ers. Two highly commended team projects will be entered into the Maths Talent Quest, the nation-wide competition.

Logic students finished the program with a reflection on their learning and exploration into careers in maths. They brainstormed ways to continue engaging with extension and enrichment, building their problem-solving skills and staying connected with the community of like-minded peers.

A student reflection:

“Honestly, Logic was very helpful in developing my Maths skills. Specifically the AMC questions really got me into the mindset of applying my critical thinking capabilities and problem solving skills… Some topics in Logic confused me a lot and if it weren’t for my teacher and peers, I would never had understood the topic…Ever since I joined Logic, I just kept getting better and better in Maths!

We are looking forward to supporting their participation, along with 40 other Elevation students, in the Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC) in early August.
