What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.Henry David Thoreau
Every two weeks, on a Tuesday afternoon, Mrs Davies and Miss Turnbull work with interested Northpine Christian College high achieving students who wish to take on new challenges and become involved in various extra as well as co-curricular projects and activities.
During this time, students are guided in choosing an area of interest, and supported through the application process, whether that be applying for various state and national competitions or for university programs and scholarships.
Students have access to a well-researched and regularly updated bank of information, and work at pace to complete the required processes and meet the expectations of various institutions.
Our High Achieving Students program at Northpine Christian College places importance on identifying, nurturing, challenging and recognising every child’s potential and skills. Both students and parents feel valued, empowered and supported in setting and attaining their school as well as life goals.
