Interschool Academic Decathlon

On September 21, 16 Year 5 and 6 students from Newington (Wyvern) competed in an Interschool Academic Decathlon held virtually between 18 schools including Queenwood, Emanuel School, St Aloysius, Randwick Public School, St Andrews, St Luke’s and Covenant Christian College. The students competed in 10 decathlon events including: English, Mathematics, Poetry, Science, Art, Drama, Engineering, Creative Thinking, Geography and General Knowledge. The students had a fantastic day of fun, learning and collaboration – competing in events that were ‘harder than they expected’.

Newington would like to especially acknowledge Rosalind Walsh and Lisa Allum from Queenwood for all their hard work and inspiration in organising the event.
