02-Jul-2014

Teams from across Australia came together at Knox in the first week of the holidays for the 2014 da Vinci Decathlon National Championships.

The Decathlon, which was created by Knox in 2005, is designed to celebrate the academic gifts of young people by providing a stimulating and challenging competition run in the spirit of an Olympic Decathlon.

Students compete in teams of eight across 10 events including code breaking, English, art and poetry, creative producers, engineering and cartography.

Congratulations to this year's winners.
