19 Nov Epro8 Juniors
We hosted the EPro8 Junior competition at Pakuranga College on 11 November and were elated when our junior team placed 3rd behind two teams from St Kentigern.
This team was selected as a wildcard for the semi-final event held the previous week, and cleaned up with a resounding first place before contesting the final. The team consisted of Year 10 students Paris Lin, Daniel Shen, Joshua Grinsted and Ashley van Gemst.
Even though disadvantaged by a faulty module, they remained resilient and determined and bounced their way up the leader board once the fault was discovered. We look forward to seeing what this team will achieve in future competitions.
