Available to Year 11 students, the program pairs students with qualified industry professionals to learn about and experience future career opportunities. The industry professional role models share their knowledge, expertise, and wisdom about their careers. Throughout the process, students establish connections, engage in professional dialogue, and gain insight into a possible career pathway. Program participants showcase their experiences to their cohort and teachers during an innovative award and presentation event.
The Future Minds Program is a unique opportunity for selected Year 9 students. The Program centers around providing students with more specialised extension opportunities and enabling high achieving students the opportunity to build their interest and practical skills in two core areas – Humanities and STEM studies.
The program encourages students to respond in unique ways to the challenges of the future and is very much driven by their interests and skills. Previous projects have included:
Building sustainable housing
Designing solar cars
Using robotics and coding to solve real-world problems

Writing a historical fiction narrative
