da Vinci Decathlon Competition

Students representing the School to participate in the da Vinci Decathlon

Throughout the week teams of students from Years 5–10 have been competing in the state da Vinci Decathlon academic competition. The da Vinci Decathlon is an interschool gala day held in various locations across Australia. Designed to emulate an academic version of an Olympic decathlon, each challenge is team based and divided over a three-session day. The team determines how they might allocate their members and manage their time and materials. It is about pooling resources and working in true collaboration, to solve challenges and answer questions laterally and creatively.

The idea came to life in Knox Grammar, Sydney in 2005 and was designed to celebrate academic prowess in ten disciplines: engineering, mathematics and chess, code breaking, art and poetry, science, English, ideation, creative producers, cartography and legacy.

We have had amazing results across all year groups and areas of competition. Well done to all students involved!
