e-Manuel Innovation Challenge

This term’s e-Manuel Innovation Challenge has demonstrated the wonderful creativity and originality that our students possess. From Kindergarten to Year 6, students have worked using the Design Thinking process to consider a range of issues and ideas, developing inventive and imaginative solutions.

A special thank you to all students who have participated in the challenges. It has been a pleasure to see your ideas and creations each week. Here are a few snapshots of just some of the incredible projects that students have been working on. Students are able to access the showcase of work from each challenge via Stile.

During the holidays, all Innovation Challenges will be open for students to access if they would like to complete these optional projects. These can be completed individually or as a family.  

ICAS Competitions – New scheduling

The ICAS competition window has been extended even further to cater for the NSW return to campus. Should there be students who are not able to return to campus for medical reasons, ICAS organisers are looking into the possibility of running competitions online or parents can request a refund directly from ICAS. Should parents prefer to seek a refund, please email ICAS with your invoice number and copy Mrs Brody into your email to ICAS so she can update the list of participants. ICAS organisers have communicated that the competition portal will close on Thursday 25 November 2021.

At this stage the competitions will take place for Year 6 between Wednesday 3 November 2021 – Friday 5 November 2021 and for Year 3, 4 and 5 between Friday 12 November 2021 – Thursday18 November 2021.
