2018 Space School International Study Program

We are pleased to announce that Our Lady of Sion College is promoting the opportunity for students to participate in the 2018 Space School International Study Program. Through the Alliance of Girls Schools Australasia, students have the unique opportunity to join other students from participating Alliance of Girls Schools Australasia schools on this once in a lifetime, STEM-based experience at NASA in the USA.

Recognising the challenges facing young students today, where the change of pace in society over the next 30 years will outpace the change we have experienced in the past five thousand years, the program is designed to equip the girls with the necessary skills to thrive in this era of such dramatic change.

The program focuses on three specific areas: Science and Technology, Leadership and Motivation and Personal Growth. By ensuring all three areas are addressed, the program aims to help build students into 21st Century leaders with transferable skills to adapt to the fast-changing society they will enter. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn beyond the classroom in some of the world’s most inspiring environments.

We are very excited to be holding a one-hour information session about this international study program to be held on Thursday 15 March 2018 in the Miriam Theatre. Staff from Acura who work in partnership with the Alliance of Girls Schools Australasia, will present the information session and cover relevant details regarding travel and cost. This study tour will be facilitated and staffed by Acura and involve students from other Colleges.

There will be take home information handed out on the night, so please register your attendance via http://actura.com.au/alliance-vic-ourlady-rsvp/:
