Ella Patterson (Year 7), Charlotte Bruna (Year 8) and Emma Dyson (Year 8) competed in the Queensland State Finals of The Quest on Saturday 12 November.
This is a team challenge for gifted and talented students developed and presented by BRAINways Education in conjunction with the University of Queensland.
Three sessions extended on the application of the knowledge inspired by the theme ‘Journey to the Centre of the World’ and learned in the first round of the competition.
Each session involved critical and creative thinking with open ended activities.
Our students placed first in the Humanities section, first in the Science section and were so excited to receive a trophy for being the Queensland Champions of the Year 6-8 division.
Our team now has another opportunity to apply these higher order thinking skills at the International Competition which takes place on 10 December.
