The Research Institute for Children and Adolescents (RICA) develops opportunities for primary and secondary students from all backgrounds to participate in authentic research and make valuable, recognised contributions to the scientific community


The first of its kind embedded in an educational organisation, the Research Institute for Children and Adolescents (RICA) seeks to improve and optimise the academic and personal wellbeing of boys and girls through rigorous scientific research, with the RICA team and external researchers from universities and private organisations. This research progresses through knowledge translation into practice by promoting adolescents as engaged research scientists creating opportunities for impact. RICA is lead by Amanda Pooley, Executive and Clinical Director, with the purpose of bringing best practice evidence-based programs and initiatives for boys and girls into the daily operations of education and wellbeing.
