Community challenges win in regional competition

Westlake Girls placed first and second in the Auckland Regional  Tahi Rua Toru Digital Challenge Competition. “Epilepz” was selected as the Auckland Regional winner, with  “No Justification for Discrimination” a very close second.

Hannah Richardson, Bree Souster and Paris Headford are the Year 10 students behind Epilepz – an app they developed to help people with epilesy.  “The app tells people when they will have a seizure and when to take their medication,” says the team. “There are games, music and meditation courses to help people relax and there is a way to connect with other people with epilepsy. All their progress will be tracked in their virtual garden.”

Epilepz is now competing for the national title and you can check out the video of their App HERE.

Lina Amer, Ivy Doak, Adrianna Tobin is the Year 10 team behind “No Justification for Discrimination” – a website which takes the issue of discrimination in our community.
