START UNIVERSITY NOW

words by Leslie Medema, Head of Academics

High School students are engaged in the SUN (Start University Now) programme with Central Queensland University in Australia.  This program, which includes two university level courses on Environmental Science and Psychology represents the launch of our Green U initiative at Green School.  Our students enrolled in these online courses with our Green School educators as their mentors alongside professors in Australia who provide guidance as well.  This blended learning model is successful around the world and is giving our students an understanding and confidence around academic life after Green School. 

And how are they doing? Outstanding is the answer!

On the first of two major assessments in the psychology course, our students received a perfect score and two near perfect scores (one point off).  The remaining three students (who are in 9th grade currently - 5 years younger than most of their counterparts!) performed at or above average as compared to University students participating in the same course.  In addition to being more than prepared for the rigor of more traditional university academics, our students are being congratulated for bringing a perspective and experience to the virtual classrooms that enriches the program

Congratulations Green U participants!

Bring your own bags and containers and get ready to fill them with grains, pulses and much more – all at bargain prices. Then on to a Bon Bon Chocolate shop where you can fill a box of yumminess for under rp100,000. Our last stop will be an amazing, all you can eat, cooked to order, dim sum feast.

Please do rsvp to gspa@greenschool.org  and make your payment of Rp160,000 to Kate or Leah to secure your seat on the bus. Revenue goes to support the BioBus enterprise and the GSPA to support our goal of purchasing a marimba set for Green School.
