Gateway 8 Academic Gala Day 2016

In Week 4, two talented teams of eight students represented William Carey at the Gateway 8 Academic Gala Day. The theme of the day was ‘Time‘ with teams completing a number of subject based challenges around the theme.

This is the fifth year that William Carey has participated in the Gala Day. Both the 7/8 and 9/10 teams had a great time competing against similar students from private schools all over Sydney.

A big congratulations to the Year 9/10 team who achieved an overall place of 3rd out of 23 teams. Well done!

Below are photos of the day and the students that participated.

Australian Brain Bee Challenge

Capture

On Monday 22nd August, Esther P (Year 10) represented William Carey Christian School at the Regional Finals of the Australian Brain Bee Challenge, a competition for high school students to learn about neuroscience. In addition to participating in live questions at the final, she also experienced a day of activities to educate her about neuroscience research at UWS.

Although Esther did not make it to the next round (national finals) she did a great Brain-Facts-PDFjob representing her school.

Well done Esther!
