Da Vinci Decathlon

Each year, schools from all over NSW gather to participate in the da Vinci Decathlon at Knox Grammar School. The da Vinci Decathlon is an academic competition designed to challenge and stimulate the minds of school students. The girls compete in teams of eight across 10 disciplines: engineering, mathematics and chess, code breaking, art and poetry, science, English, ideation, creative producers, cartography and general knowledge. The theme for 2019 was Landscapes. The day is challenging and fun and the girls learn to be flexible and collaborative as they work together.
