Boost for Middle School in 2020
Middle School Boost is now up and running for 2020. We have had a good response from students eager to extend themselves and take on these challenges.
It has been particularly exciting to see some students new to the BOOST program coming along. Application forms can still be obtained and interested students can still put their names forward. Applications for this program close on Friday 20 March.
The PCS Boost Program has always operated under the premise of enriching students’ learning. For 2020 this remains; however, in Middle School the focus has changed to promote greater student ownership of their learning and development of 21st century skills.
To this end, we are looking for students who possess, or are willing to develop, perseverance, teamwork and academic achievement. Rather than selecting students purely from previous academic results, all Middle School students are invited to apply. We are excited to be able to open up the Boost Program for a wider range of students.
You can be involved with:
- The da Vinci Decathlon
- Tournament of Minds
- Middle School Newspaper
- Maths, Science, English and Writing competitions
- Debating (Years 7 and 8)
- Maths Olympiad (Years 5 and 6)
Middle School Boost has five Award levels - you choose the level of your challenge!
