Students take up the challenge

The challenge brings together Clarkson Community High School’s four partner primary schools to compete in problem-solving challenges, and Somerly won the 2013 cup.

CCHS head of invitational education Anne-Marie Ellery said the event was also a major aspect of the high school’s transition program.

‘The primary school students are provided with an engaging opportunity while we get to know our future students and alleviate some of the anxiety that students (and parents) may feel about entering secondary school,’ she said.

The teams from each school were paired with two Year 10 mentors to work on a task during Term 3 with the winning team announced at a presentation evening last month.

Somerly deputy principal Andrew Britton said it was an opportunity for students to show leadership skills.
