The Year 7 and 8 teams competed at Canberra Grammar as usual in the ACT competition, accompanied Mrs Renee Taylor, Deputy Principal Learning and Year 12 student Jade Esler.
The Year 8s won the Ideation and Art & Poetry challenges.
The Year 7s won Art & Poetry, were 2nd in English, 3rd in Engineering and Creative Producers, and took 3rd place overall. This is our best result in the junior competition for some years.

The Year 9s placed 1st in Codebreaking and Science, 2nd in Engineering, General Knowledge and Ideation, and 3rd in English. They took 3rd place overall. The Year 10s placed in every challenge except Creative Producers, and took 1st place in Engineering, Science, English and Ideation. They were the overall winners.
