STUDENTS from three Alkimos schools recently took part in their first annual Northern Bright Stars Academic Challenge.

Year 5 and 6 students from Alkimos Beach Primary School, St James Anglican School and Northshore Christian Grammar School took part in the event hosted by the Anglican school.

“Overall Alkimos Beach Primary came first,” associate principal Richard Allbury said.

“Activities included world mapping, general knowledge, acronyms, collective nouns, ‘quizzles’, persuasive advertising role play and an engineering (STEM) boat task.

“The STEM challenge was by far the favourite of all the students.”
