FPS Finals 4  FPS Finals 3Recently a group of very talented and hard-working students from Year 8 represented our college in the National Finals of the Future Problem Solving (FPS) competition. The girls progressed through to the final in Melbourne after being one of six State winners earlier in Term 3.

FPS Finals 2

The two day competition in Melbourne saw the girls compete against the top performing students and schools in Australia in the Year 7 – 9 component of this gifted and high ability competition. Our team of four girls again excelled to be ranked in the top seven groups, of the national teams competing, at the end of the first day. While we didn’t take a top three place on the final day our girls again excelled and performed exceptionally well in all components of the competition. Our congratulations to Matilda A, Brooklyn B, Gabrielle B and Lara M, and to Mrs Wedmore for all her guidance and expertise in working with the FPS girls. Congratulations also to Mollie A and Grace F for their role as ‘Magic Team’ members; Grace’s team placed 2nd overall and Molly’s team placed 3rd .
