'On Friday 22 April those students who have been involved with the Extended Project presented their finding and research to their peers, their advisors, and to members of the school community.
Six students presented on a wide range of topics, including: chronic pain; how best to control class A drugs; perceptions of women in gothic literature; the development of NASA’s mission to Mars; the issue of concussion in contact sports, and democracy in ancient Athens. These presentations were the culmination of seven months of independent research and analysis on a question of the students' own choosing. Our pupils spoke well, especially during the question and answer sessions, where they often revealed a deep understanding of their chosen topic. Well done to all those who were involved.'
- Mr R D Hughes (Master of Scholars)
