On Tuesday 22nd Janaury the boys and girls of 5th class had an early start to attend the VEX competition in CIT. Over the past number of months the class has been working hard designing, building and programming a robot to play the VEX IQ Next Level game.

The first part of the competition was the individual driving and programming challenge, in this section the school came third overall. The next part of the competition was the team work challenge where we got to drive our robot with other schools to get a joint score. Our scouts were hard at work to come up with game plans for driving with the other schools. At the end of very exciting section we came joint third. This was a great result considering there was over twenty five schools competiting on the day. The 5th class had a great day out and were very pleased by what they had achieved.
