Boys build a winning bridge

16 Aug 2013



The boys, Crawford McRoberts, Travis Fluck and Henry Diddams, competed against 42 teams from 21 West Australian schools. 
 
The annual competition for Year 8 and 9 students provides an opportunity for students to design and build model bridges in teams of three, using materials supplied by Aurecon. The bridges are then tested to see which one holds the greatest load. Competition judges assess each bridge for workmanship, creativity and visual appeal and this score is combined with the maximum load supported to determine the overall score.
 
The students enjoyed the opportunity to participate in the competition and especially enjoyed presenting the big cheque to the Headmaster in front of the senior school!
Inspiring students to achieve personal excellence and to be outstanding citizens who work to create a just, loving and peaceful society.
