What is CSI?
Clarence Science Initiative is a unique educational program to enhance the mathematical, scientific and technological education of Year 5 and 6 students in the Clarence Valley.
Students participate in practical and laboratory work, theory and fieldtrips around the local area.
The program aims to:
- encourage an enthusiasm for science, mathematics and technology
- challenge and extend students
- enable early high school orientation
- offer the opportunity to meet other students from different environments
“The Clarence Science Initiative is a great opportunity offered by South Grafton High School to enthuse and extend Year 5 and 6 students in the science field. This program also assists primary students in transitioning to high school and encourages the pursuit of science based careers”; Mrs Megan Johnson, Principal
Students from Year 5 and 6 from Clarence Valley Primary Schools sit an exam which is the key to their acceptance into the program.
The year long program has 3 classes of 20 students. Each class attend one day per fortnight, during the School Term. Students from the same school are accommodated in the same class.
