From Academic Enrichment Coordinator, Stephanie Boyce
In 2019, Waverley placed two teams in the annual Tournament of Minds Competition – an event designed to challenge and enrich students across a range of disciplines. Each team member dedicated their spare time and effort in between other commitments to preparing and presenting a challenge focused on solving and portraying a current world issue or problem-related to one discipline -The Arts, Language Literature, Social Sciences or STEM.
‘TOM offers teams of students the opportunity to solve authentic, open-ended challenges that foster creative, divergent thinking whilst developing collaborative enterprise, excellence and teamwork.’
In 2020, Waverley is offering students the chance to participate in Tournament of Minds for their Winter Co-Curricular as part of the College’s dedication to providing a range of both academic and sport-related opportunities to represent the school.
We are seeking expressions of interest for students from 7* to 10 (*2020 year) who may be interested in participating in the 2020 team. Numbers are strictly limited to each year group due to the requirements of the competition. Further to this event, consideration will also be given to participation in other academic enrichment events such as the Term 2 Da Vinci Decathlon and Cluster Days.
