Year 7 students Karl Prandl, Matthew Haughey, Michael Tierney, Elise Lee and Ashleigh Cole are heading to Melbourne this month to debate the topic of healthcare access with other Australian schools.

The trip is part of the Macquarie Bank Future Problem Solving Program, which is an international competition designed by a psychologist as a learning tool for gifted students.

To make it to the international final this year, St Simon Peter School students must place first or second in the Australian final.

If they are successful they will be invited to attend the international final in the United States.

Teams from Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Australia will compete in the finals.
