From our Academic Enrichment Coordinator, Stephanie Boyce
On the 28th and 29th May, teams from Year 7 to 11 participated in the annual Da Vinci Decathlon held at Knox Grammar School. The competition comprised of teams of 8 completing a variety of academic tasks ranging from code-breaking, creative producers and ideation to cartography, engineering and art/poetry.
Boys worked collaboratively on challenges throughout the day based on their areas of interest and/or subject strengths. The competition itself is incredibly challenging and designed to ‘stretch brains’ – and our Waverley boys had some tough competition to compete against with many selective and top academic independent schools participating.
On both days we managed to place in categories – with our Year 8 team placing 2nd for General Knowledge, Year 9 placing 3rd for Mathematics, and Year 10 placing 3rd for Science.
Well done to all teams!
