Challenging and stimulating young minds at the Da Vinci Decathlon


Forty of our students across Years 7 – 11 recently participated in the NSW State da Vinci Decathlon earlier this term. The Decathlon is an academic competition designed to challenge and stimulate the minds of school students. Students compete in teams of eight across multiple disciplines. The Decathlon is designed to celebrate the academic gifts of Australian youth by providing a stimulating and challenging competition run in the spirit of an Olympic Decathlon. The competition not only challenges their academic abilities but also fosters skills such as communication, adaptability, and perseverance.

We are proud of all our students for embracing the spirit of teamwork and collaboration throughout the Da Vinci Decathlon
