At Domremy we enjoy a close relationship with our feeder primary schools. This includes the involvement of our secondary students with primary students in a variety of ways. Most recently Domremy hosted primary students from St Ambrose Primary School, Concord West, running a gifted science program for Year 4-6 children (part of Sydney Catholic Schools’ Newman Selective Gifted Education Program, which Domremy is accredited to deliver).
Below is an article well worth reading by Dr Simon Crook, Founder of CrookED Science and Honorary Associate at the School of Physics, The University of Sydney. Dr Crook was involved in the day with both Domremy and St Ambrose. His article has been published on the AGSA (Alliance of Girls Schools Australasia) website, and highlights the very real benefits of both such a program and the interaction between younger and senior students - something which will hold them in good stead well beyond the classroom.
