Year 7 Da Vinci Decathlon

29 June 2012 by

On Monday the 25th of June, 16 students from 7 Green travelled to Overnewton Anglican Community School for one of the 2012 Da Vinci Decathlon Regional Finals. The Da Vinci Decathlon is a competition which has ten challenges. The students were placed into two teams, the Tenison Woods and Mary MacKillop teams and given challenging tasks to complete based around Art and Poetry, Creative Producers, Engineering, General Knowledge, Science, Mathematics, English, Code Breaking, Games of Strategy and Philosophy. The topic of this year’s Decathlon was ‘Flight’.

At the end of the day, the Tenison Woods team were placed first in Engineering and the Mary MacKillop team placed second in Creative Producers. We are very proud of the students and the wonderful way they presented themselves and competed in the competition. Well done to all!
