Wagga & Albury campuses in Brain Bee State Finals!

Wagga and Albury Campuses did exceptionally well in the Brain Bee State finals, coming home with some exciting wins!

MET School Albury and Wagga Year 10 students have competed against other elite schools at the Brain Bee State Finals at UNSW to come in 2nd place in the team challenge, finishing only 1 point behind James Ruse Agricultural College! In addition, special congratulations to Reuben Wallace who did exceptionally well in the individual challenge, coming in 2nd place after Onur Tangley from Sydney Secondary College. These are exceptional results given our small class cohort in the participating campuses.

Many thanks to Mrs Jenny Stephens who has spent months assisting and coaching the students while preparing for this challenging event. Students have shown great commitment in at-tending lunch time coaching sessions via VC, studying after hours and during school holidays, setting quizzes for each other, all the while being closely supported by past participators from Wagga Campus. The benefits to the students at this stage of their school career is inestimable—they applied themselves to challenging study mate-rial and realized their most ambitious goals! They proved once again, that they have the potential in themselves to be High Achievers! Congratulations Year 10 on a splendid result.

Reuben Wallace’s comments on the atmosphere at the event pretty well sums it up for everyone: “It was AWE-SOME! Everything about it was awe-some. Everyone was so pumped and competing against all these other elite schools was a really good experience. Also learning these fascinating facts about the human brain is really amaz-ing, explaining why we do what we do every day!”Thanks to parents from both campus-es who transported and supported the students!
