On the first week of the April school holidays Year 12 ATAR students were treated to a unique opportunity to experience university life during an excursion to ECU Joondalup, Murdoch, Curtin and UWA campuses.
Those who participated were provided with some personal insights delivered by university representatives and then guided through a variety of faculties including the Engineering, Health, Nursing, Business and Science Departments. Students were also invited to sample the Market Day food stalls at Murdoch as well as conduct an experiment at ECU’s science lab. The excursion required the students to negotiate public transport to the universities in order to engage their sense of time and orientation.
The ATAR students were grateful for the chance to take part in such an authentic and meaningful encounter of university life; they are eagerly looking forward to joining the various university environments next year upon graduating from Sevenoaks Senior College.
