Aniruddh Chennapragada (10) has had a fabulous week in the USA at the Intel ISEF 2016 competition. Aniruddh has won 4th Grand Award in the Environmental Engineering (Physical Sciences) category and a US$500 prize. Aniruddh’s project was to convert pistachio shells into plastic. The Australian team have done extremely well achieving four Fourth Prizes and one Third. Congratulations to all.
“Dear Young Scientist Supporters,
On Friday our Year 11 students participated in another part of their Crossroads program – RYDA. Road Safety Education, in association with Rotary, provides the RYDA program to students. The aim of the program is to reduce the incidence of road trauma for young people. Our students were very engaged and interested in the day.
Next Tuesday night, 24th May, at 6.30pm we will host Sydney University’s Information session for Year 10 students.
We will be still holding our own Year 10 Information night on Thursday 21st July to ensure students have a full understanding of the subjects available to choose from.
Year 7 – 10 are now finished their exams and should be very proud of the effort they have put in to preparing themselves and studying. Please ensure you praise their hard work before the results come out. It is very important that parents and students value effort over results.
The Year 8 Information Night which allows parents and students to learn about the many subjects offered in Year 9 will be held on Monday 30th May – please note this date has changed from the one previously published in the calendar.
I strongly encourage all students to give up one day of their weekend – Saturday 28th or Sunday 29th – to volunteer collecting for the Red Shield Appeal. Ryde Rotary helps us transport and supervise the students so they are always looked after by an adult and always with other students. Students can meet at 8.30am at school or at West Ryde Station. It would be best if Year 7 students were to meet and be collected from school. This is a wonderful learning experience for our students and also a vital help to our community.
A message from Spencer Hu, President of Interact:
The Red Shield Appeal is an awesome volunteering event open to ALL YEARS. It's door knocking for the Salvation Army from 9am till 2pm with a barbecue to finish off, volunteers will be going in groups of twos so bring a friend along to sign up! Every dollar you raise goes to putting a roof over someone's head or to helping a disadvantaged student stay in school. Volunteers can choose to volunteer either day or even both days.
Sign up to the online roster using this link:
Date and Time: 8:45am till 2pm on the 28th and 29th of May (Last Weekend of May)
Location: Volunteers can choose to be either picked up and dropped off at school or at West Ryde Station
What to wear/bring: Comfortable but appropriate clothes and a positive attitude!
