Special features and programs

The Academic Achievers’ Program is a program that is differentiated from the Middle School course. Whilst it is expected that students cover core content for each term, these classes will be able to do so at a faster pace, leaving time for further development and exploration.

Industry and university links provide teachers and students with the opportunity to learn from industry placement, in-service, classroom instruction, visits to facilities, web links and provision of resources.

QUT Faculty of Built Environment and Engineering.  

Two students from the 2010 cohort gained Dean’s scholarships to QUT worth $30,000 each. The top student every year receives a $3,000 bursary to continue their studies in Engineering at QUT.

SPARQed partnership with Diamantina Institute 

Selected students or teachers can spend a week in the labs at Diamantina with research scientists working on projects such as Site Directed Mutagenesis of the HPV E7 Gene.

MEGS 

Manufacturing and Gateway Schools industry partnership.

QBEN 

Queensland Biotechnology Education Network engages students in Year 12 in gel electrophoresis and green fluorescent protein transformations.

STEM 

Kelvin Grove Middle school students engaged in forums and experiments conducted by Department of Natural Resource Sciences and UQ bright minds. Students present their own research and experiments at a forum.

The Annual Science Fair displays the amazing science investigations of our Year 10’s.
