On Saturday, seven of our gorgeous middle-schoolers competed in Tournament of Minds at LaTrobe University in Bundoora. Our team (nicknamed the ToMpetitors) consisted of:
Xavier G. (6E)
This event was the culmination of many weeks of hard work, with the ToMpetitors having to learn to work together as a team to create a response to a challenge. The students were responsible for everything from reading set texts, to creating a script, building props and keeping a budget. On Tournament day they had ten minutes to perform their solution, including set up and clean up, in front of a panel of judges and audience. They also competed in a top-secret spontaneous challenge. For several of the students, it was also their first time on a university campus and entering a lecture theatre, which was incredibly exciting for them!
The students worked extremely hard, had a blast on the day and are now excitedly awaiting feedback from the judges. I am super proud of their effort and the great attitudes with which they represented our College. If you see them around, please congratulate them and ask them about their experience!
