It’s been a huge week at ICS for our da Vinci Decathlon teams! On Wednesday 8 May we were privileged to host the Regional da Vinci Decathlon for Years 5 and 6. Our school played host to 38 teams from across the South Coast and Illawarra, as well as the Southern Highlands. Teams came from government, independent and Catholic schools to compete.
Here are some snaps from the day. Both our Year 5 and 6 teams were named overall champions at the end of the competition! This is an outstanding achievement, of which they ought to be proud. The day ran smoothly, thanks to the efforts of many of our staff, who worked tirelessly behind the scenes.
On Thursday 9 May, our Year 7 and 8 da Vinci teams travelled to TIGS for their day of competition. Yet again our students showed determination, commitment and amazing teamwork, digging deep to complete 10 challenging tasks in the decathlon.
There were around 18 teams in each of the year 7 and 8 competitions and both our teams achieved 2nd place overall. This was an outstanding achievement with selective, Catholic, independent and public schools all taking on the challenge. Congratulations to all our students, you have done ICS proud.
Our thanks also go to Mr Spreitzer and Mrs Brown, who accompanied our teams and mentored them, and especially to Mrs Brown for her hard work and commitment to the event.
