The LINQ Precinct launch was a very special day in the history of our College, as Their Excellencies, General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd), Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia, and Lady Cosgrove opened the new LINQ Precinct at Sheldon College.

A new gateway to learning was revealed as guests toured the LINQ Precinct and saw first-hand the multi-modal facility, including student demonstrations of how the convergence of technology, pedagogy and space directly affects the learning environment.

Yesterday’s classrooms have been replaced by a new learning environment which includes individual pods, breakout spaces, display spaces, wet areas for project work, collaborative incubators and specialised focus laboratories.

The performances were believed by many to be some of the best we have ever seen at the College. We are especially grateful to all of the Parent volunteers who gave up their valuable time to support our students and staff during this time.

Sheldon College Robotics club is here!

The club is run by Mr Moss in LD1 (Linq Precinct) on Wednesday, 3:45pm to 4:45 and will run all year. The club is open to Years 6 to 10. In the last 2 lessons students have been using the motor function of Lego Mindstorm robots to complete the space challenges. Students are now making use of different sensors such as light intensity, proximity and ultra-sonic sensors, so robots can detect the world around them.

Robotics is the world’s fastest growing industry. Robots already perform tasks such as cleaning homes, automated laundry services, building cars and mining. Studying robotics can lead to various jobs such as: Mechanical / Software Engineer, App development or Management positions leading to salaries of $140K+.
