STEM Application

Dear Parents and Carers,

I would like to offer your child the opportunity to apply for the STEM Enrichment Program. This year, Hedland Senior High School is continuing the STEM (Science Technologies Engineering Mathematics) program focusing on Engagement, Embedding, Extension and Enrichment. The STEM Enrichment Program aims to build student knowledge and understanding of technologies through cross-curricular learning after school.

In Term 3, we will not focus on a specific topic of STEM, instead we will run workshops that include a range of different STEM-based activities. These include:

  • Biology dissections
  • Building electrical circuits
  • Rockets and explosions
  • Slow motion cameras
  • Laser cutting

This term, the program will run for 9 weeks and will still be open to students in years 6 to 9. This is a highly competitive program where students will be offered a placement through application only. There will be only 1 class for Term 3 and this class is capped at 20 students.

Term 3 Course:

Course Title:  STEM
Day and Time:  Thursdays, 3:00pm – 4:30pm (Doors open from 2:30 pm)
Duration:  Term 3, Weeks 2 – 10

The STEM Enrichment program comes to a cost of $50 per term. This cost includes and covers all resources, materials and other consumables. Please do not pay for the program until acceptance has been confirmed in writing. Proof of payment is required before commencement of the program.

As this program still falls within Hedland Senior High School, it is required that all students uphold the school ethos, rules and value, which can be found at school or in the school diary. For further information, please contact me at or 9172 8000.

Kind regards,

Cameron Pilapil
