Champion School!

Champion school at the schience and engineering challenge 2021Another STEM-related competition. Another accolade. Pacific Hills has continued its reputation of performing well in national and international STEM programs by being named Champion School at the Science and Engineering Challenge at Olympic Park.

The Challenge is a nationwide STEM (science, technology, engineering, maths) outreach program presented by the University of Newcastle.

Our contingent of Year 9 and 10 students experienced various aspects of science and engineering which they would not usually see in their school environment. Then, they were placed into groups of four and assigned a number of challenges. The students displayed great team work and perseverance throughout the day to use the gifts God has given them to do their best.

We were awarded the Champion School for the day and scored enough points to be considered for the State Final in Newcastle in August.
