By participating in Glenbrook South’s competitive teams, students are encouraged to work collectively towards common goals and analyze complex problems from various perspectives.

The nature of these groups fosters a spirit of constructive competition, pushing students to think creatively and critically to devise innovative solutions. Through these valuable opportunities, students not only acquire vital skills that will benefit them academically, professionally and personally but also develop a strong foundation for future success.
