This term, a group of 24 year 7 students took part in the Victorian Government’s Student Excellence Program, also known as the Victorian High Abilities Program (VHAP). The program focuses on developing and extending students skills and abilities in English and Mathematics. The students in the English group engaged with like-minded peers from other Victorian Schools, discussing the theme ‘Hope in Dystopian Times’ after reading “Hive” by AJ Betts. The Mathematics group investigated number sequences, finite and infinite concepts during their virtual session. Well done to all students who took part in this program. We hope you can apply the knowledge and skills learnt in the program in future classes.
