Trinity News : August 2012
TRINITY NEWS 7 2012 National Geographic Channel Australian Geography Competition Results. Students from Years 8 -10 challenged their Geography skills and knowledge in the annual Australian Geography Competition. The competition is designed to promote the study of Geography in Australian schools and encourage a greater appreciation of the world around us. Approximately 80,000 entries were received from schools throughout Australia. Of those Trinity boys who entered 32 students (27%) gained High Distinctions, 23 students (19%) gained Distinctions, and 22 (18%) gained Credits. Evan Caddy (10Hi), at right, was placed equal first in the State with three other students, with a score of 39/40. As a result of a tough Tie-Breaker series of questions, his final place was third in the state, which was a very creditable result. This is the second consecutive year a student from Trinity Grammar School has tied for equal first in the state, prior to the tie-breaker questions. Ten students received High Distinctions for a second consecutive year: Alex Connolly (9 Ar), Dillon Giacoppo (9 He), Evan Caddy (10 Hi), Adrian Cheng (10 Fo), Jack Collins (10 Ho), Leo Jiang (10 Mu), Andrew Serb, (10 Ar), Rohan Simpson (10 WH), Raymond Song (10 La) and Daniel Weissberger (10 Fo). These individual results and Trinity’s overall performance are very encouraging. | Mrs Kim Kerr| Head of Geography GREAT GEOGRAPHY RESULTS!
