“During the past seven weeks Salesian has been holding a Lego Competition. On Mondays and Tuesdays, students from all year levels entered the event hoping to win the grand prize, a box of Lego. This year we had eight teams of two in a knockout system, building to a brief for each contest. I partnered with my classmate Evert Eykman and we were fortunate enough to make it to the final. In the final we built a black panther sitting on a branch in a tree, which was judged to be a winner in a close finish.

What I enjoy about the Lego Competition is that we can share our interest in Lego with other people in our school community. I also enjoy building the Lego because after we have finished it we can look back at what we have done and be proud of it. Next term I will enjoy the Lego Club, where we can build for fun and anyone can join in.”
