With Gerard Clark
It is with great excitement that we share the news of our students' participation in the Horizon Grand Prix (HGP), a highly competitive international Formula One (F1) race for high school students.
Our team of students has been preparing for this event for several months, working tirelessly on the design, development, and testing of their miniature F1 race cars. They have shown exceptional skills and dedication in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and have learned valuable lessons in teamwork and problem-solving.
The HGP is an excellent opportunity for high school students from around the world to showcase their skills in STEM subjects and compete with their peers. The competition tests their abilities in designing and building miniature F1 cars that can reach incredible speeds, while adhering to strict regulations and safety standards.
Our team of students participated in the first ever Australian competition with 19 schools from around Australia converging on Gladstone for the event. The competition was fierce, and the students had to face challenging tasks and obstacles, but they demonstrated resilience and determination throughout the event.
The HGP also provided our students with an opportunity to meet and interact with other high school students from around the world, fostering a sense of global community and cooperation. They had the chance to exchange ideas and learn from one another, which is an invaluable experience that will stay with them for years to come.
While our team did not come out on top in this year's competition, we are incredibly proud of their hard work and dedication. They represented our school with excellence and showed the world what our students are capable of achieving.
We congratulate all the students who participated in the Horizon Grand Prix and commend them for their hard work and dedication. We wish them all the best for their future endeavors and hope that they continue to pursue their passion for STEM subjects.
