In Term Two, selected students in Year 12 were invited to participate in the Bond University Mathematics Extension programme. The programme was conducted over two days during the school holidays, 15 and 16 April.

The academic component of the programme involved students learning how to use the R programme (most for the first time) and then applying their knowledge of matrices to solve a problem using R. The programme was pitched at a high level and students displayed resilience and adaptability. The following students were awarded a Credit Certificate. 

  • Zali Cheng
  • Alexander Nelson
  • Beatrice Zhang
  • Xenia Dariush-Far 

Congratulations to Xenia who achieved a High Distinction and was also awarded a $5000 Bursary to Bond University.

Professor Bruce Vanstone and Professor Steve Stern (who ran the academic component of the programme) reported to me that they were genuinely very impressed by all the students from Somerset College.

Congratulations to these students.
