Our Queensland Champion team, consisting of Rebecca Senbel-Lynch, Hannah Senbel-Lynch and Isabella Ashworth travelled to Sydney on Friday 16th August to attend the Australian Grand Final for the Ai for Good Challenge. Their families, our program co-ordinator, Mr Frederic Legrand and Mr Peter Turner accompanied the girls. The girls were once again amazing with their presentation of “Chameleon Frames”, an Ai (artificial intelligence) concept they have designed to diagnose CVI (Cerebral Visual Impairment) which affects Rebecca and Hannah’s brother, Sean, and many other children. The panel of judges consisted of many executives in the technology industry and the event was supported by Microsoft Australia. Our team placed second in Australia, which was an amazing achievement, particularly as there were representative finalists from all other states and territories. Mr Legrand and I were both very proud to see the girls and our school performing at this prestigious event that blended the business and school community together so well. It was one of my proudest days in over 26 years of service as a State School Teacher.
On Monday afternoon 19 August, our girls went into the ABC studios at South Bank to tell Brisbane ABC radio listeners about their project and their success. The team interviewed well, and continue to amaze me with their talents. Bayside has so much to be proud of.
