“Congratulations to the Year 5 & 6 students who competed against 360 students from across the district in the Middle School Problem Solving Challenge at Wavell State High School today! All four teams worked beautifully to solve some highly-challenging maths, science and technology problems. Special congratulations to the Year 6 team, Carson, James, Rosa and Sonny, who were awarded FIRST PLACE for their efforts!
