The final two winning schools across the country have enjoyed a visit from Australia’s only LEGO Certified Professional, Ryan McNaught. The Brick Man visited Nichols Point Primary School in Victoria and St Lawrence’s School in Western Australia as he continues to inspire our builders of tomorrow, as part of the LEGO Education Learning Inspiration competition.
The theme of the day in Victoria was Australiana, as the kids built everything from Uluru to paddlesteamers on the Murray River all using the iconic LEGO brick.
In WA, a local theme saw students building items inspired by the historic Geraldton and swan river settlements.
The challenge, which was inspired by the Festival of Play, gave registered schools across Australia 20 LEGO bricks and asked students to build a creation based on something they learnt at school this year.
It was a talented young bunch of seven year olds in Victoria including Luka, Caspar, Bridie and Jai who impressed the judges with their entry inspired by their favourite people in the community – Vets.
While a half frog, half tadpole built by seven-year-old Ben Conley won over the judges in WA to score his school the winning visit.
