A dozen White Rock Christian Academy students are set to test their “21st century skills” against other students from around the world at Destination Imagination global finals in Knoxville, Tenn.
Destination Imagination is a non-profit organization which aims to “inspire and equip” students to become innovators and leaders, though critical-thinking, academic challenges.
WRCA had three teams take part in the Destination Imagination Fraser Valley tournament in late February, and all three also competed in provincials in April at Kwantlen Park Secondary. Two White Rock teams – the BIG in Motion team (Grade 5) and Technology Masters (Grade 3) – won gold medals in their age groups, moving on to the Knoxville event, which is set for May 25-28 will see 17,000 students from 15 countries take part.
The participating WRCA students are currently fundraising to help cover their costs for the trip, and anyone wishing to help can call the school at 604-531-9186.
