Congratulations Year 11 student Angie Zhou whose performance in the Biology Olympiad this year, placed her in the top 24 students in Australia. This fantastic result provides her with the opportunity to attend the Science Olympiads Summer School.
"The Australian Science Olympiads Summer School is a two week residential science program for around 100 secondary school students who are invited to attend based on their performance in the Australian Science Olympiad Exams.
Held during the January school holidays at the Australian National University in Canberra, the summer school is an opportunity for talented students to work with others who are passionate about science.
The work schedule is intense and covers the equivalent of first-year university studies in biology, chemistry, Earth and environmental science and physics. It's a great head start to further studies and careers in science.
High-achieving students at the Summer School, and those who perform well in final selection exams, earn a spot on the Australian Science Olympiads team and go on to compete at the International Science Olympiads – the Olympic Games for science students."

Well done Angie. We can't wait for you to share your experience with us at the beginning of next year.
