This week on assembly there was resounding applause for Charles Box who won his individual division of the Future Problem Solving National Finals. The middle years team of Jasmin Groves, Sebastian Box, Piper Reid and Trixie Willett and individual Logan Pohlner, who competed as part of a mixed school and age team, were also celebrated. This prestigious competition attracts some of the brightest and best students from across Australia and sees them engage in real life problem solving as individuals and as teams. The topic for the national finals was ‘Coping with Stress’ with competitors considering how exponential change and fast paced trends in society will continue to increase stress in the future.
Students worked hard to prepare for the state and national levels of competition and we thank Mrs Jo Belchamber, Mrs Rae Hall and Mrs Petta Scheiwe for their leadership. Charles now has the opportunity to travel to the United States of America in 2020 to compete in the International Future Problem Solving competition.
