Discovery College Class of 2018

Achievements

- A huge congratulations to Niina, who is having her design for the Arts Fest Parade selected for production in the US!


- Also, well done to Cosima, Howard and Jimmy for being awarded a distinction from the Centre of Mathematics and Computing. This means that they scored in the top 25% of all participants in the Pascal Contest. Another congratulations to Soovin, who was awarded a medal in this competition.


- These are amazing accomplishments, and there is so much talent in our grade, some that other students may not know about. If you know something that you feel that you or another student has achieved, please let an Ambassador know. Again, well done guys!
