Melville Intermediate - Melville Survivor: Grand Final

It all came down to this, after twelve weeks of competition the two remaining competitors were Alyssa from Room 12 and Brandon from Room Nine.  They'd each had a part in elimination ten other students representing each of the classrooms of Melville Intermediate School.  Their final task was to successfully remember in order from first to last each of the eliminated students.   Both students were very nervous because there could be only one winner and the runner up would receive nothing... so the final episode was the most important ever.

This now concludes all our 2011 posting.  The students will start posting again next Wednesday which will be their first day back in the new classroom.  We look forward to re connecting with the friends and acquanticies that we've made online over the past few years as well as those of you who are out there that were still to meet! Stay tuned to this site!
