iDesign 2023Presenting your 2023 iDesign award winners.
During Week 1 of Term 4, the Year 8 boys unveiled their impressive iDesign projects, which they had been working on since Term 1. The week was dedicated to presenting and selecting the winners, spanning three consecutive days.
On Tuesday, every Year 8 tutor group had the chance to showcase and evaluate their peers’ projects based on specific criteria: Sustainability, Innovation, Creativity, and Entrepreneurship.
Wednesday saw the culmination of efforts, with our top 16 finalists presenting their projects to a panel of esteemed staff members and the 2022 iDesign champion, in what we fondly refer to as ‘Sharktank’.
On our concluding day, Thursday, we commenced with an open exhibition for the Junior School. This was followed by the People’s Choice event, which featured Year 7 students casting their votes for the top two.
The evening extended to include Parents/Mentors and Community members, who enthusiastically explored and engaged in discussions with our Year 8 boys. This interaction flowed seamlessly into our presentation night, where we proudly announced the winners.
The number of projects presented was truly astounding. Each of the three finalists exhibited distinctive characteristics that set them apart, a testament to their powers of observation, dedication, and ability to think innovatively.
The meticulous attention to detail and the sense of depth displayed were truly impressive.
