Comet Bay College was one of 5 Secondary School Finalists in the Governor’s School STEM Awards for 2017.
The Governor’s School STEM Awards (the Awards) were established in 2015 to recognise the support and commitment of school principals and leadership teams in developing their schools’ science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education programs. In doing so, the Awards aim to raise awareness of the importance of STEM education among school leadership, and incentivize them to support their teachers in undertaking STEM initiatives.
The Awards identify high quality outcomes and approaches in STEM subjects as well as in the way STEM teaching is integrated across learning areas.
The College was recognised for its comprehensive and integrated STEM program, as well as its growing leadership and engagement on STEM matters across the education sector.
