Awards to local high schools

Our club's 'Benefic Award' is an annual award we present to one Year 9 student at Turramurra, Ku-ring-gai Creative Arts and Killara High Schools who displays "a favourable influence" amongst their peers.

Model United Nations Assembly (MUNA)

High school students develop an awareness of the United Nations and the countries they represent at this simulated UN Assembly. They address and debate problems and issues of international concern. Clubs sponsor teams from high schools who each represent a UN country.

Letter of appreciation from a student: "MUNA has been a wonderful opportunity for all of us to build..." 

National Youth Science Forum

We sponsor local Year 11 students to attend this annual 12 day residential program held in Canberra in January, designed to give students a broader understanding of the diverse study and career options available in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and to encourage them to continue their studies in these fields.
