This is a competition that has been running in Western Australian secondary schools since 2007.  It grew out of the success of the primary competitions. A secondary event was not held in 2008, however since 2009 it has become an annual event.

Named after its creator, the Frank Drysdale Secondary Numero Challenge is a one off event each year and has remained relatively small but supported very loyally by a number of schools.  As more interest has been shown recently, it is being considered that perhaps the event will grow to two heats, followed a week later by a grand final.  Watch this space to see what this year holds, as any decision on 2019 will be made following a registration period.

Previous Winners
Prior to the current champions, previous winners included Carey Baptist College (the first five years of the event), St Stephen’s School Carramar (three victories), Mercy College (two victories) and now this year (2018) Melville Senior High School.

Champions 2018

(1st, 2nd and 3rd respectively)

Winners: Melville Senior High School

2nd Place: Carey Baptist College

3rd Place: Swan Valley Anglican Community School

Winners: Melville Senior High School

Melville Senior High School were ecstatic to bring the trophy home to their school. This is the first time a Government high school has won the event, so there was definitely a feeling of having ‘done it for the masses’!  This makes the fourth different school to have now won this competition.

This year’s competition was held at St Hilda’s Anglican School for Girls in Mosman Park.

Second place was taken out by Carey Baptist College (their best result since winning in 2012), and third went to Swan Valley Anglican Community School (their best ever result). So, congratulations all round!
