Scholars’ Program 2014

Friday 5 December, 2014


The Pymble Scholars’ Program provides an opportunity for academically talented students in Years 8, 9 and 10 to work beyond the curriculum in researching a topic of their own choice.

There were a wide range of topics explored in this year’s program including:

  • Medical conditions
  • Nanotechnology
  • Genetics and human enhancement
  • Conventions of war
  • Fairytales and mythologies
  • Ethics
  • Music and sport
  • Personalities and emotions

The scholars were guided by a mentor to research their topic and produce an original creative work inspired by their findings. These have been presented in the form of websites, digital presentations, short films, graphic novels, poetry and musical compositions.
