Shambhavi Mishra in Year 10 won the QLD Brain Bee finals and is the representative for the National Competition in Hobart later on this year. Maggie Wang placed 2nd overall and David Nguyen placed 4th with Kira Villiers placing in the top 10 out of 138 participants!
Even though Sharon Lam did not place, she was a pivotal part of the team. Their team also placed in the top 7 out of 22. This is a fantastic effort given over 40 schools were present.
Also, a special mention must go to Bianca Goodchild and Moki Thanusing in Year 11 who tutored and coached the year 10 students for the last two terms for the competition.
