Centre for Excellence Excursions

As part of our Centre for Excellence program students are offered opportunities throughout the year to participate in local and interstate excursions that expand their scientific and mathematical knowledge and experiences.

International excursions

Singapore and Malaysia

The annual trip to Singapore and Malaysia gives students the opportunity to widen their mathematical, scientific and cultural horizons. The 10 day experience includes visits to places of mathematical and scientific interest such as the Singapore Science Centre, the Marina Barrage Dam, the NeWater Plant and the Selangor Pewter Factory. The aim of the trip is to enhance students’ applied knowledge as well as stretch their mathematical and scientific horizons beyond the usual classroom.
