Year 12 student Sophia Ahern was selected to represent Coomera Anglican College at the prestigious National Youth Science Forum (NYSF) in Canberra during January 2017.

The NYSF is a highly competitive programme, which offers less than 500 places from the many thousands of applications they receive each year. The NYSF helps students moving into Year 12, who wish to follow careers in science, engineering and technology by introducing them to research and researchers, by encouraging the achievement of excellence in all their undertakings, and by helping to develop their communication and interpersonal skills. It also fosters discussion of and interest in major national and global issues and emphasises the importance of maintaining continuing active interests in sport, arts and music.

Sophia has kindly provided a summary of her experiences below.

 

NYSF Summary


Applying to the NYSF was one of the smartest decisions I have made. The 12 days spent in Canberra at the National Youth Science Forum was incredible. From visiting some of the best research institutions and facilities in Australia, hearing from Brian Schmidt (2011 Nobel Prize Laureate), seeing some unbelievable new technology, making lifelong friends and chanting our hearts out. There are not enough words for me to express how unbelievably amazing the NYSF was.
For those who don’t know about the forum is, it is a 12 day residential programme for students entering Year 12 who enjoy the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects. The programme aims to allow participants to explore where STEM can take them now and in the future.


In May 2016 the applications for the NYSF opened and I wasn’t really certain about applying. I was unsure whether I would be successful. When I applied I knew I loved Physics and Engineering and I was adamant that I was going to study at Griffith University. My plan was to get a good OP and not go ridiculous in Year 12. The forum really opened me up to the opportunities available by looking at other options for university and also showed me what I can achieve with a bit of hard work. This really focussed my goals and now I realise that I need to work really hard in Year 12 to achieve my best and for me this was invaluable.


The people at the NYSF make the programme truly special. It is not often that you’re surrounded by over 200 intelligent and likeminded people who are all together to enjoy the wonders of Science and to get involved. Everyone is alike and accepted. I was also a bit worried about going to Canberra as I knew no one, I had to make all new friends and for me this was amazing.


My message to all the Science students is that if you’re interested and passionate about Science apply to this programme, it will be the best two weeks of your life.

Sophia Ahern - Year 12

Coomera Anglican College has a proud tradition of NYSF delegates and we are proud to have had Sophia representing the College in 2017. Sophia wishes to acknowledge the support of the Rotary Club of Nerang in endorsing her application.

Secondary Public Speaking Success

Congratulations to our Secondary student public speakers who competed in the finals rounds of the 2016 AB Paterson Public Speaking Competition on Wednesday and Thursday evenings this week, with particular congratulations to Grand Finalists, Shaye Bardsley (Year 7 Grand Final competitor) and Genaya Bardsley (Year 9 Grand Final 2nd place winner).


Our finalists were:

• Year 7 – Shaye Bardsley and Eli Beckton
• Year 8 – Cambria Hunt, Kyrra Wilks and Christina van Aswegen
• Year 9 – Claire Wilson, Parker Newlan and Genaya Bardsley
• Year 11 – James Robins and Connor Raggatt
• Year 12 – Megan Callaghan and Anja van Aswegen


Of these finalists, Shaye Bardsley from Year 7 and her sister, Genaya Bardsley from Year 9, were selected to progress into the grand final rounds. Shaye’s topic was ‘Whatever happened to a life without technology?’, which explored the simplicity of life before technology consumed us, while Genaya delivered a speech on the topic ‘Speaking Frankly’, contending that technology is reaching epidemic proportions, ruining human relationships, disconnecting us from the real world and destroying our ability to communicate face-to-face. Both students delivered their speeches with great composure and passion and it was a privilege to be in the room to observe their fine performances. Special congratulations to Genaya, who was awarded Grand Final runner-up in the Year 9 division.
Ms Catherine Hallewell - Head of English

CONGRATULATIONS to Year 12 student Riley Todd and Year 11 student Conor Bronson who are the winners of the 2016 Mayor’s Junior Golf Development Scholarship. Mayor Tom Tate said ‘The boys along with another local golfer were selected on their golfing talent and leadership’

The Scholarship awards the boys with Emirates flights to watch the 2016 Open Championship in Scotland, a visit to the Emirates global hub of Dubai, a round at the famous Royal Troon and three months mentoring from the Professional Golfers Association (PGA) of Australia.

PGA Professional and Chairman Mark Gibson, who will mentor the boys said ‘There are many differences between successful players and other players in every elite sport.  Any time a young player can learn shortcuts to success without the pitfall of learning by making mistakes is a bonus. This opportunity offers that to these young aspiring golfers’.   

Riley is member of Gold Coast Burleigh Golf Club and its pennant team. Riley plans to study engineering and sports technology at university after graduating this year.

Conor is a member of Sanctuary Cove Golf Club, recipient of the Long Tan Youth Leadership Award, winner of a part scholarship through Titleist and Junior Golf Queensland Rising Star’s Program. Conor hopes to make golf a full-time career.

Well done to both students, we look forward to hearing about their adventure to Europe in July.

Thirty four Year 10, 11 and 12 Drama students together with Head of Drama Kirsty Terry, teachers Cathy Hallewell and Peter Goodman, returned on Sunday evening after a long weekend of Drama-focused activities in Sydney.

The itinerary was rich with incredible theatrical activities and performance experiences which included: Physical Theatre workshops with NIDA, a full length Shakespeare Romeo and Juliet at the Sydney Opera House, Improvisation workshops in the beautiful Sydney Theatre company space, an in depth backstage tour of the Opera House, a night at the Short and Sweet Drama Festival, Matilda the Musical, evening picnics in a park and so much more.

Drama Picnic
Mrs Terry said the entire weekend was just fabulous and thanked each of the students for their enthusiasm and willingness to learn new things, their desire to open their minds to new experiences, their delight in making new friends and the way they unashamedly expressed their emotions and feelings, in turn making her incredibly proud. Students and staff were awe-struck on many occasions. This experience certainly inspired excellence in teaching and learning and will no doubt impact on their future endeavours both in and outside of the Drama classroom.

Aquatic Wonderland Mural Officially Open

The project took eight weeks from the moment we first got 49 boards cut and Turyia Bruce, our artist in residence, stepped into the department. By now hopefully you would have seen our College mural, it is a bit hard to miss from most angles around the College. It first started off as a relatively small project, with the inspiration of decorating the College with a bit of colour. Finally our vast mural has come to life.
