DA VINCI DECATHLON

YEAR 5 WIN 2ND PRIZE AT DA VINCI DECATHLON.

 

On Monday 1 2017 a Year 5 team and Year 6 team participated in the first Hunter Regional Da Vinci Decathlon. The Da Vinci Decathlon is an academic competition designed to challenge and stimulate the minds of school students. Students competed in teams of eight across 10 disciplines: Engineering, Mathematics, Code Breaking, Art and Poetry, Science, English, Ideation, Creative Producers, Cartography and General Knowledge.

 

Both teams had a very successful day with Year 5 winning English, Ideation, Code Breaking and General Knowledge and claiming 2nd prize overall in the Year 5 Competition. Our Year 6 team won Code Breaking and came 4th  overall in the Year 6 Competition.

 

Our teams not only went well academically, but also won the famous canoe race, where teams had to work together to shuffle along the floor holding each other’s feet. The race was light entertainment for all the students who had worked very hard all day. They received a highly coveted chocolate award for their efforts.

Please congratulate our teams for 2017 on their fantastic results!
