Congratulations to our Year five and Six Team of Alex, Vancouver, Dryden and Jack in placing second in the first round of the EPro8 competition.
Following on from our success in previous years, our Y5/6 team move into the semi finals of the EPRo8 Competition after placing 2nd in the first round against 11 other schools.
This is an Inter-School Science and Technology Competition for Y5/6 and Y7/8 students. Our other team which was in the Y7/8 competition placed 7th in the first round facing some tough competition and unfortunately does not advance any further.
The teams had 2 ½ hours to complete as many challenges as they could. Points are accumulated through the challenges which are displayed on a scoreboard throughout the competition. Being able to see where the students are placed adds to the pressure.
Both of our teams worked really well together and completed some very difficult challenges.
We are all incredibly proud of the students' efforts and achievement. Go Te Rapa!!!!!
