After winning in 2013 and 2014, St Thomas’ Primary School was pleased to host the 2015 Academic All Stars Tournament for Year 5 students.

 

Each school team is made up of eight students; who should be able to work together with their differing strengths to complete tasks from 8 different disciplines.  The tasks were exciting and challenging with a particular emphasis placed on higher order thinking skills.

 

Students participated in team activities in the following disciplines:

Engineering Challenge, Art, Poetry, English, Drama, Mathematics, Chess and General Knowledge

 

Our team consisted of:

Amy Searle, Ella Hogan, Oscar Martella, Euan Cowie, Abbey Mattingley, Minerva Chaney, Charlotte Moody and Sofia Alvarez Lopez.

 

This year we competed against students from St Paul's, Newman College, St Dominics, Holy Spirit and St John's.

 

It was impressive to see St Thomas' students finish in 1st place in both the Drama and General knowledge challenges.

 

The Tournament was a huge success and the St Thomas' students represented our school superbly! Overall our students finished in 2nd place! A fantastic achievement!

 

Congratulations and well done to the 2015 St Thomas' Academic All-Stars and Mrs Keatch! You have done St Thomas' proud!
