‘TAKE 2 STEAM’

Warwick Senior High School features prominently in the WA Government’s new STEM campaign to ensure young Western Australians are ready for the jobs of the future.

The campaign message ‘Take 2 STEM’ aims to encourage more WA students to select at least two STEM subjects – Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths – especially those entering Years 11 and 12 or those considering a vocational pathway.

Our current School Captain Alana Dooley and former student, Caleb McKenna (Leaver 2018) were both selected as youth ambassadors for the campaign.
