National Youth Science Forum
Congratulations to James Priest on his selection to attend the National Youth Science Forum at the Australian National University in January 2012. James applied and successfully gained sponsorship through the St Ives Rotary Club to attend the program. NYSF gives Year 11 students the opportunity to attend University, participate in a Science program and meet other Science students from across the Country.

Brain Bee Challenge
Some of our Year 10 students participated in the Brain Bee Neuroscience challenge earlier this year. Harry Rogers and James Wiseman were selected to attend the State final round of the competition last week and to participate in a day program at the Medical Faculty at the University of Western Sydney. The program gave our students some insight as to what it might be like to carry out medical research.
