The Alliance has partnered with iVicon, the exclusive Australasian partner for HASSE Space School, to offer our members a fantastic opportunity.
HASSE Space School immerses students in the world’s most profound and impactful STEM environment – that of space exploration and science in conjunction with NASA. Overlaid on this experience is a learning framework that incorporates personal development in areas such as self-motivation and reliance, goal setting, team work, curiosity and imagination … the multi-disciplinary skills necessary to empower our young women to take on the changing technological landscape they will face in their careers and life.
This life-changing experience is available to girls attending Alliance schools. As part of our partnership, the Alliance has organised combined-schools expedition in 2017 for member schools in NSW, ACT, Victoria, Queensland and WA.
This arrangement allows multiple schools from each region to participate with a few students each rather than each school needing to recruite an entire group. One of the real benefits and added advantages of an Alliance expedition is the opportunity for girls to build friendships and connections with like-minded girls from different schools.
NSW: Juniors (Years 7-9) 25 June — 9 July / Seniors (Years10-12) 9 December — 23 December
Vic, ACT, Qld, WA: Junior (Years 7-9) and Senior (Years10-12) 9 December — 23 December
The Alliance offers one junior scholarship and one senior scholarship in each region (NSW, ACT, Victoria, Queensland and WA).
Applications for NSW, Victoria, ACT and WA are now closed.

Opportunities for accompanying staff
