School lead­ing the way

Joondalup Times - - OPINION -

WARWICK Senior High School is a state leader in sci­ence, tech­nol­ogy, en­gi­neer­ing and maths (STEM) ed­u­ca­tion.

It is one of five sec­ondary school fi­nal­ists in this year’s Gov­er­nor’s School STEM Awards for its sup­port and com­mit­ment in de­vel­op­ing STEM ed­u­ca­tion pro­grams.

Gov­er­nor Kerry San­der­son con­grat­u­lated fi­nal­ists on their achieve­ments.

“To­day’s stu­dents will be step­ping into the jobs of the fu­ture and STEM skills will be vi­tal to their suc­cess in these yet-to-be-imag­ined roles,” she said.

Sci­ence Min­is­ter Dave Kelly said 75 per cent of Aus­tralian’s fastest-grow­ing oc­cu­pa­tions re­quired STEM skills.

Judges will visit the fi­nal­ist schools late this month and win­ners will be an­nounced at a cer­e­mony on Novem­ber 27.
