Well done to all our students involved in SADD - appearing on One News - check them out



As part of Gifted and Talented Education at St Dominic’s Catholic College, 30 of our Year 11 students participated in Round 1 of Australian-New Zealand Brain Bee Challenge. They were given a book to learn about how the brain works and sat an online test on the 21st of March. Brain Bee Challenge is open to any Year 11 students who are interested in learning about the brain and neuroscience.  Congratulations to Eliza Butler and Caitlin Kilpatrick who have been invited to participate in Round 2, North Island Finals. They will visit the Auckland University Medical School on 5th of July. They will attend some lectures and take a tour around the brain research centre. They will also compete with other students from around North Island. If they win in Round 2 individual competition, they will get a chance to compete with other winners from each state in Australia & South Island (NZ) in Adelaide. The winner will get everything paid for – 2 airfares for the student and a caregiver, accommodation and some shopping money. Good luck!
