The Imaginarium is a place where gifted girls are encouraged to develop their talents and interests through a diverse range of activities and challenges. Courses are open to students at Perth College as well as those who do not attend the School and are held during and outside of school hours and in the holidays.
Our next profile is of an Imaginarium mentor who is a Year 7 student at Perth College. Vrishni was kind enough to volunteer for two courses during the April school holidays, with participants’ recognising her effective and inspiring mentoring in their feedback surveys.
Vrishni is an enthusiastic young lady with a bright and vivacious personality whose friends describe her as “energetic”. She enjoys reading, playing the violin, dancing, swimming and cooking, which she also notes are her strengths.
When she is older, Vrishni would like to be a doctor specialising in neurology. She says, “The human body and the nervous system have always intrigued me.” The people who make her laugh the most are her friends and you can often hear Vrishni’s laughter when you pass through the Year 7 area in the schoolyard.
Vrishni says she is “surrounded by people who inspire her”, with her parents and her teachers at the top of the list. She enjoys the complexities that come with the Imaginarium courses and supporting students to persevere when facing challenges by helping them to workshop new strategies. Her love of learning is evident through the tenacity in which she approaches new challenges and her patience through the time she takes to explain and demonstrate new skills to participants.
The Imaginarium is very fortunate to have you as a mentor, Vrishni.
