da Vinci Decathlon

Established in 2005 at Knox Grammar School in NSW, the da Vinci Decathlon has grown to become a nationwide competition involving thousands of students between Years 5 and 11.

The Decathlon is an academic competition designed to challenge the minds of school students, where they compete across 10 different disciplines; engineering, mathematics, code breaking, art and poetry, science, English, creative production, ideology, cartography and general knowledge.

Since 2015, Saint Francis Xavier College has selected and trained two teams of Year 7 students to enter each year – one team from each junior campus – and the students have found the experience to be intellectually stimulating, fun and rewarding. The competition emphasises critical thinking, working collaboratively as a team, and lateral approaches to solving problems that are often analogous to real-world scenarios.
