This week's Bulletin features an exciting overview of last Thursday's Aurecon Bridge Building Competition, where two Year 9 teams from St. Dominic's competed against 23 other schools and took home the (two) top prizes. This achievement was a culmination of many weeks spent in the FabLab at lunchtime, learning and practicing new skills as part of the College's STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) program. Well done!
Also featured in this week's edition, which is available online here.
