Our talented Mathematics students had the opportunity to pit their wits against students from many other schools in the state on two Friday nights in March.  The Upper School team was at Trinity College on March 10 and performed well against very competitive opposition. A big thank you goes to Mr Nesa for coaching these teams before the event and attending the night.

The Year 9 and 10 students travelled to All Saints College on March 17 and took part in their night with 40 other teams. The two teams were equal third halfway through the night but they didn’t manage to hold onto those placings at the end of the competition. They all enjoyed their evening and were exemplary ambassadors for our school, reports Mrs Waddell.  A very big thank you to Ms Thamrin for all the work she put in to preparing and coaching the teams for the night.

The Year 7 and 8 teams competed at Trinity College on March 17.  Our junior teams were outstanding on their night and were a credit to themselves and their coach Mr Hughes.  Both teams placed in the Top 10 of the competition and they highlighted the quality of Mathematics students coming through our school.  Mr Hughes said our students were rewarded with great scores for their dedication to rehearsing for the event and the clever strategies they employed on the night.

Year 10 Applecross Senior High School students on the Canberra tour attended the ANZAC Day Dawn Service at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra this morning. Students had to be ready to leave the hotel at 3.30 am in order to be there for the start of the service at 4.30 am. Students were respectful throughout the service and had a memorable experience despite the cool temperature and rain fallen during the morning. Thanks to Leonard our bus driver as well as Mrs Crofton and Mr Dickson who helped with this successful six days in Canberra.
