2017 Outstanding Achievements

At TIGS, our holistic approach sees students excel across a vast number of areas including academic, the arts, sport and languages. Here is a taste of their achievements so far in 2017.


In recognition of her demonstrated excellence in mathematics and science, Year 11 student Rebecca Adams was selected to attend the UNSW Women in Engineering Camp in January 2017. The five-day experience involved workshops, site-visits and networking events with professional engineers.



         Year 11 student Billy Fisher was one of only 16 students from across Australia – two from each state and territory – selected for the 2017 National Summer Art Scholarship. To win this scholarship he was required to submit an artwork and a written reflection to an artwork by Narelle Autio. The scholarship included an intensive week-long art program at the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra. Students were able to go behind the scenes to experience the workings of the Gallery, learn how works of art are acquired and exhibitions developed, and receive expert tuition from Gallery staff and professional artists.

         In January 2017, Year 7 student Biddy Leitch went to compete in Hawaii at the International Gymnastics Competition Aloha Fest. She competed against girls from America, England, Japan, China and Alaska and came 1st in Bars, 1st in Vault, 1st in Floor, 7th in Beam and 2nd overall.
