On Wednesday the 21st of May, eight Year 5 students competed in the Academic All Stars Tournament.

The Academic All Stars is a competition that quizzes the skills of a number of Catholic schools in Perth in Chess, Art, Poetry, Engineering, English, Mathematics, General Knowledge and Drama. It could have been held at any one of the schools but in 2014, it was at our school because last year the St Thomas’ Year 5's won. The day was not all about winning, but more about getting together with other ‘like minded’ students to take part in some very challenging tasks. To our surprise we were the OVERALL WINNERS! We each got a medal and shared an enormous trophy as well.
