Outstanding Effort shines in Euka High School!

My daughter is in year 9 and has created an edible earth layer for her science project.
She really enjoyed this one and was excited to share with her fellow Euka family.

Lucas volunteering for Year 10, T3 W2 Launchpad. “I volunteer as a Bushfire cadet, and I will be fighting fires on the ground with the Brigade as soon as I turn 16”.

Ellie has just started G9T3 and so far is having a blast. This is Ellie’s earth layer cake for science this week. She really enjoyed telling her brothers and sisters about the layers of the earth and of course sharing the cake with the family.

In August my daughter (16yo in year 10) is going on a 9-day marine biology sailing expedition along the Great Barrier Reef. The company that runs these trips, Science Under Sail, is brilliant (she’s already done one trip with them before) and it’s an excellent experience for anyone interested in marine biology as a career.
Plus, because of home schooling flexibility we’re no longer limited to school holiday trips.
