It is such a pleasure to announce that we are officially a partnering school with Australian Science Olympiad-Chemistry and Physics (ASOC & ASOP)! Hosted by the Australian Science Innovation, the ASOC and ASOP are the toughest chemistry and physics exams in Australia.

It is a rewarding opportunity for high school students to challenge and extend themselves beyond school science through challenging exams. On October 22nd and 23rd, we had our first student competed in the ASOC and ASOP, congratulations on finishing them!

We have been working hard on bringing more competitions to our Hanova community, and now we have the chance. The ASOC and ASOP, will be an
