Dear Parents/Caregivers and Students


It is that time of year when students get to nominate for entry into a wide range of Academic Competitions. What benefit is there in a student taking on the challenge of the competitions? Some reasons include:

• great educational value in practicing challenging questions

• personal satisfaction and challenge

• opportunity to earn worthwhile certificates for resumes

• earn points for their House (Fraser, Moreton, Stradbroke)

In the past, many BAC students have performed admirably in these competitions and have received due recognition. The attached letter lists all of the competitions that will be offered on the Secondary Campus in 2014. Students and parents are asked to nominate for any competition they would like to be involved in and are eligible for. Note that there will be a cost involved, though this has been reduced by a College subsidy.

Please return the nomination form to Secondary Reception by Friday 16 May.

Thank you for your support and participation in promoting the academic aspects of school life.
