Last Tuesday afternoon, four Year 12 Accounting students travelled to Townsville to participate in the CQU Business Challenge.  Held at the CQU campus, these students represented Ayr State High against six other schools from the region (Bowen SHS, St Patrick's College, Pimlico SHS, Kirwan SHS, The Cathedral School and Townsville Grammar).  After a long trip in Mrs Woods' car with her “impeccable” taste in music and her “beautiful” singing we eventually arrived at the campus. Now, the problem was that a student hadn’t tied their tie yet and no one knew how to tie a tie. So with the help of Google and many attempts they managed it on their own. Shenikah Grabs, Matthew Schifilliti, Alexander Timm and David took on four multiple choice rounds on various topics; Accounting, Business and Economics, Business Law and General Knowledge. Considering other schools had students from a broad selection of subjects, not just accounting, the ASHS representatives did an excellent job by overcoming their nerves to take out second place, beaten by only Townsville Grammar by a slim margin.  For second place they received medals and a participation certificate.  CQU provided afternoon tea, biscuits and lollies on the tables, for the hard working students, and *cough cough* Mrs Woods.  It was an excellent competition and our students gained a valuable experience taking part in this competition for the first time.
