Earlier this term, a group of students selected from Year 8 participated in an international competition known as ScienceIQ. The competition consisted of a series of online science quizzes conducted by the Science Teachers’ Association of Western Australia (STAWA). Each quiz assessed the students on their knowledge, skills and understanding in most areas of science, such as astronomy, biology, chemistry, physics, biotechnology and science investigations. All teams were required to answer the greatest number of questions correctly in the shortest amount of time.

The Science Department is pleased to announce that one of the Year 8 teams has won third place in the competition. The following students are to be congratulated on their outstanding achievement at an international level: Adam A, Raphael S, Lily B and Demi L.

We would also like to thank the other Year 8 competitors for their participation in the competition.
