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 was 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 in secondary schools, 2019 saw a change, with 2 heats being held, leading to a final the following week.

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 Melville Senior High School (one victory).

Champions 2019

(1st, 2nd and 3rd respectively)

Winners: Aranmore Catholic College

2nd Place: Carey Baptist College

3rd Place: Duncraig Senior High School

Winners: Aranmore Catholic College

Aranmore Catholic College were a new addition to our secondary Numero family when they joined us this year.  Their primary school had done positively in that event, so the pressure was on when the secondary decided to “have a go”.  Clearly they did well and were successful in bringing the trophy home to their school.   We have now had five different schools win the event – what will next year offer??

This year’s heats were held at Aranmore Catholic College and Woodvale Secondary College, with the Grand Final decided at Duncraig Senior High School.

Second place was taken out by Carey Baptist College (same result as in 2018), and third went to Duncraig Senior High School (their best result so far). So, congratulations all round!
