Getting a Head Start

Year 12 Student

Congratulations to Year 12 student Pari who has been offered a place in the University of Adelaide’s Headstart Program.

Adelaide’s Headstart scholarship program gives highly motivated students the opportunity to study at university while still in Year 12. The university studies completed count towards SACE and the university aggregate selection rank. Students are presented with a challenge beyond the Year 12 curriculum with the chance to grow as individuals as they combine secondary school and university studies.

Placement Success

In 2021 when Tayah was in Year 10, she submitted an early application for a work experience placement at the Tea Tree Gully Veterinary Hospital. The practice runs a great program for students, but you must be extremely organized as it’s very popular and many people apply. Tayah was not put off by the competitive nature of applications and made sure she approached the practice manager early. She was rewarded with a weeklong placement where she shone and impressed the staff with her attitude and capabilities. Tayah has now gained part time employment at the practice and spent many happy hours there during the recent school holidays. Congratulations on a wonderful achievement Tayah!
