Welcome Ashdale Secondary College STEM award winners

Earlier in the day the Governor welcomed students from Ashdale Secondary College to Government House in celebration of their success in winning the 2020 Governor’s STEM Award in the Secondary Schools category.

The impact of COVID-related restrictions meant the award couldn’t be celebrated until today, with students from across Year 7 to Year 12 attending a morning tea in their honour, hosted by the Governor.

The Awards identify high quality outcomes and approaches in STEM subjects as well as in the way STEM teaching is integrated across learning areas.
