Sunday 12th February saw 12 students from Rutherglen High leave for a one night Discovery Day at the University of Wollongong (UOW). Although it is a six hour bus trip to UOW, it is well worth the time as the Discovery Day program is very well organised by the University.
Day one saw students stay at the Wollongong Surf Leisure Resort and the highlight of this included two walks along the beach, one in the day time and one at night.
Day two saw students complete the Discovery Day sessions various lectures across many different faculty areas including Engineering, Arts, Education, Multi Media, Nursing and Philosophy just to name a few. Students also completed sessions focussing on what courses Wollongong University offers, where university degrees can take students, accommodation at Wollongong and what university life is like.
Overall all students enjoyed the Discovery Day with many students commenting that this trip has made them seriously consider University studies as an option in 2025 or 2026. This is one of many opportunities RHS students will have to visit Unis and TAFES across the year and we would like to thank the University of Wollongong for once again providing students with the opportunity to participate in the Discovery Day program.
