Stellatus Showcase Evening

November 25, 2021

‘Wow! Wow! Wow!’ ‘Fantastic!’ ‘Inspiring!’ The Stellatus students were showered with accolades by the audience at their showcase held on Wednesday 17 November. Months of hard work culminated in an outstanding evening presenting the students’ projects. The Year 7 and 9 students were given free choice of topic and covered a huge array of ideas. There was everything from developing a line of natural cosmetics to exploring the social impact of Netflix to proposing ways of supplying our future energy needs using hot air!

The Year 9 projects were focused on improving the local community through better urban planning and design and the judges were blown away by the sophisticated understanding and creativity the students demonstrated. The level of engagement and commitment people saw in the students was phenomenal. Even the shyest and quietest students came into their own and were confident, eloquent and passionate. They knew their topics thoroughly and rose to the challenges of the tricky questions that came their way. Plans are afoot to bring the showcase to the wider school community in 2022.
