Burnside High School Gifted students excelled at this event
The artist Austin Kleon once advised his students, “Draw the art you want to see, play the music you want to hear, write the books you want to read, build the products you want to use.”
In designing the World Scholar’s Cup, the organising team have kept something similar in mind and designed a programme to challenge the exceptional students.
