Introducing Our State-of-the-Art STEM & Senior Learning Centre (SLC) Building: A Hub for Innovation and Discovery!

At the beginning of this school year, we were thrilled to welcome a remarkable addition to Fairhills High School—the brand-new STEM & SLC building! This state-of-the-art facility is now ready to ignite the flames of curiosity and innovation within our student body.

The STEM & SLC building stands tall as a testament to our commitment to providing an exceptional education that prepares our students for the challenges and opportunities of the future. It has been designed to foster a dynamic learning environment, where science, technology, engineering, and mathematics converge to inspire creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills.

The new building boasts a range of specialized laboratories. From biology and chemistry to physics and robotics, students will have hands-on opportunities to conduct experiments, analyse data, and explore the wonders of the technological world. The building also features spacious, flexible classrooms that promote collaboration and teamwork. These areas are designed to facilitate group projects, discussions, and brainstorming sessions. With comfortable seating arrangements and interactive whiteboards, students can engage in lively debates, exchange ideas, and enhance their communication skills.

It was fantastic to see our senior school students enter the new STEM & SLC building on the first day of school. Our students will benefit greatly from this new addition to our facilities and we wish them all the best for the year ahead in their new surroundings.

Year 12 Conference to RMIT and Deakin University

Last week, our Year 12 students had the opportunity to attend a two-day conference at RMIT and Deakin University. This event was a significant milestone in their educational journey, as it provided them with valuable insights into the world of higher education and potential future pathways.

The two-day conference aimed to empower our students by exposing them to the vibrant academic environments of RMIT and Deakin. It allowed them to explore a wide range of study options, discover cutting-edge research, and interact with faculty members and current students who shared their experiences and expertise.

During the conference, our Year 12 students embarked on guided tours of the campuses, immersing themselves in the university atmosphere and gaining a deeper understanding of the facilities and resources available. Our students also attended engaging presentations led by our own Ms Rundle, Mariani from our Wellbeing Team and a representative from ‘Elevate’ education. Our year 12s learned about the importance of planning ahead and also some key strategies for dealing with the pressures of Year 12.

Our students also had the opportunity to interact with four past Fairhills students, during panel discussions. This allowed them to ask questions, gain first hand knowledge about life after Fairhills, and acquire a realistic understanding of the challenges and rewards of pursuing higher education.

Overall, the Year 12 conference at RMIT and Deakin University was an invaluable experience that broadened our students’ horizons and inspired them to think about their future pathways. It allowed them to envision themselves as university or TAFE students and explore the vast array of opportunities available to them.

I would like to express our gratitude to RMIT University and Deakin University for their warm hospitality. Their commitment to providing our students with a glimpse into the world of higher education was fantastic. I would also like to thank Ms Rundle and Ms Henderson for their contributions to the conference. Their hard work and commitment to our students is truly commendable.

We are confident that this conference has ignited a spark within our Year 12 students, motivating them to work hard, pursue their passions, and embrace the exciting possibilities that lie ahead. Let us continue to support and guide them as they make their way through Year 12.
