Making the right moves in and outside the classroom is Atherton State High School Year 11 student Grace Lawrence.
Earlier this year Grace applied for a scholarship to the prestigious Professor Harry Messel International Science School for 2013 in Nano science. One of only 145 students from around the world, Grace will participate in a visionary science programme created for academically gifted high school students. The two-week fully residential course at the University of Sydney will include keynote addresses from last year’s Nobel Prize winner for Physics, Brian Schmidt. “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, I’m very excited to be able to participate in such an esteemed event.”
Not satisfied with academic excellence, Grace also auditioned for a featured dance role in the upcoming Creative Generations event in Brisbane. From over 150 students, Grace and fellow student Remy Martin have been selected as one of only 25 students who have repeat lead dance roles in multiple performances throughout the show. Both Grace and Remy have been flying and rehearsing in Brisbane and have been treated an amazing time learning the dances and meeting lots of new people. “This is an amazing experience that I’m thankful to have” said Grace.
Grace hopes to study Quantum Physics and specialise in Noetic Science in Melbourne when finished school.
