Then the Geosciences Summer School is for you. This is open to students from years 9-12, and will cost you nothing. Read the letter below and download the flyer for more information and to apply.

Contact your Science or Maths teacher just to let them know you are applying. Several of our current year 12 geology students have done this camp in the past and can vouch that it’s a great experience. You too can be a Rock Star! So get cracking with your applications.

Cheers Di & Anna
