Last Sunday, two teams of excited Year 7 students, the Pacific Primes and the Pacific Professors, travelled to Grace Lutheran College to participate in the FIRST Lego League (FLL) tournament. This year, the tournament grew to have 48 teams from all over Queensland and northern New South Wales competing.

The tournament involved three sections: the robot game where teams accumulate points by completing a series of challenges by programming their robots, a research project where students present their findings to a panel of judges and a design component where students are quizzed on their designs and programming abilities.

The tournament encouraged fun, cooperation, teamwork and being gracious to fellow competitors. The students involved were outstanding in the way they conducted themselves and in the way in which they worked together, in particular, as teams willingly shared their ideas and designs with each other.

At the completion of the tournament, after three rounds of the robot game, both Pacific teams finished in the top 12. This was an outstanding achievement given that many of the other teams consisted of students from Year 9.


Pacific Primes: Lachlan Buchanan, Ella Ousley, Ellie Dixon, Patrick Henderson, Alexander Jose, Cody McMakin, Sophia Summers and Joshua Stevenson.

Pacific Penguins: Cosette Winter Oliver, Toby Easton, Heath O’Sullivan, Georgia Moor, Ethan Watman, Dempsey Hall, Noah Beasley and Alex Papallo.
