Parkes High School students have again achieved great results in the 2016 academic competitions. The elective exams see the children testing their knowledge in a selection of different subjects, such as science, mathematics, writing and technology. Thousands of students participate in the exams across Australia and twenty other countries.
Forty Parkes students participated this year, some in only one, and others in up to six competitions. All students who participate should be congratulated, even if they didn’t win an award. Parkes High received three High Distinctions:
