Technologies Inter-school Challenge


On Tuesday November 9, a group of 10 Junior School students travelled to Sacred Heart Primary School in Thornlie for the Technologies Interschool Challenge. The day’s activities centred around the book, Uno’s Garden.

Students worked in different teams as they participated in a variety of challenges. Students from Years 1 – 3 enjoyed coding the Dash and M-Tiny robots. They also loved using the Cubetto robots and working collaboratively with one another.

Students from Years 4 – 6 commenced the day with a drone activity! They were required to locate a range of characters from ’Uno’s Garden’ around the quadrangle area, and had to take a photo of each one.

The students also loved using the Lego Spike kits. They were required to code the Lego robots to travel around the room. This proved to be quite the challenge, but the students had lots of fun!

Our wonderful Holy Cross College students had a magnificent day! We would like to extend our thanks to Mr Shane Landers, Assistant Principal of Sacred Heart Thornlie for all his hard work, as well as the other CEWA schools for organising the activities.
