Merit Awards Ceremony
Merit Awards Ceremony In the News14/02/2020

Each year, SACE recognises meritorious achievement in Stage 2 Subjects by awarding subject merits to a handful of students. To gain a merit, students must not only gain an overall A+ for that subject, but demonstrate exceptional achievement to the SACE board. In 2019, a little over 800 students Australia-wide were awarded merits, with past student Timothy Howard and current Year 12 Sujit Krishnan both awarded a merit for their outstanding accomplishments in one of their subjects. On Tuesday 4 February, they were accompanied by their families to the Merit Ceremony at Government House to receive their Merits.

Tim Howard
Subject: Research Project
In what ways can mathematical concepts impact pitch and harmony on the piano?

Sujit Krishnan
Subject: Research Project
To what extent has CRISPR/Cas9 technology influenced medical research and what are they ethical implications of it?

Congratulations Sujit and Tim and all the best for your future studies!

Chess Tournament
Chess Tournament In the News10/11/2016

On the 26th of September, six students from Prescott College left school to go and participate in a chess competition. The day started off on the bus ride and because I was the captain I had the honour of sitting in the front seat; next to the teacher. The event was held at Tindale High School; at their school library. There were five schools in total and our school placed third. The whole day was filled with quick 15-minute chess matches, which at the start, was very stressful. Our school narrowly missed out on a medal by just half a point, this paired with the fact that many of our players were inexperienced rookies, means that our school actually did quite well. I would recommend the chess club to anyone looking for a mental challenge. The day was really fun and I made a few friends with the other students who attended the event. It is not at all the mundane quiet environment I am sure you all are imagining. It is truly amazing.

Inter-school Cross Country
Inter-school Cross Country In the News31/07/2016

Cross Country is an endurance race, and doing well is more about strength of will and character than it is about speed or power, because long distance runners need to keep going under any circumstances. In Week 5, we had 8 runners compete in the State Cross Country Championships. Under extremely tough conditions, all one last chapel runners completed their races.
