Student Achievements & Results
Excellence on all fronts
Our results in external competitions and testing confirm the commitment of both our students and staff to achieving excellence in all we do at. The College Art Show, Drama Performance Evening, Elective Music Student performance night, public performances by our Stage Two Choir, Voice Ensemble and College Bands all highlight that the arts are thriving at EAC and providing students with amazing learning opportunities and experiences. The College continues to strengthen our focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) with continual development of our coding and robotics programs. The Stage 3 Science Fair that takes place as part of Science week is always a highlight. Students in Year 6 create a series of learning stations using an amazing array of technologies including beebots, spheros, sumobots, osmos and drones. Each station centres on a hands on experience and all students in the Primary school are given the opportunity to learn in an incredibly exciting and engaging way while being introduced to new technologies and the challenging and fun learning opportunities they provide.
A year of creative endeavour
Our students have excelled in many creative and extracurricular activities, with students performing at the HSC Drama Showcase Onstage in February this year, our secondary Tournament of Minds team were crowned regional Champions, EAC won the Primary Science and Engineering Challenge, for the third year in a row we had a student receive a Gold Certificate in the WriteOn competition, six students were state representatives in their chosen sports with one being crowned Australian champion and our Choir and bands won all six divisions they entered in the Lismore Eisteddfod and were crowned champion school. But it is not just about being the best, it is also about breaking new ground and setting the standard for others to follow. EAC’s International Students Program continues to prosper and grow as the stories and experiences of the wonderful hospitality and commitment to learning of our students spreads well beyond our borders. The great spirit of genuine welcome of our students for their overseas visitors is such a wonderful sign of their character.
