Tournament of Minds Challenge 2019

From Academic Enrichment Coordinator, Stephanie Boyce

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.

Challenges are set in the following disciplines: The Arts, Language Literature, Social Sciences and STEM.

This year Waverley College participated in TOM for the very first time – entering teams into The Arts and STEM disciplines. All students showed dedication to their teams by committing to three sessions per week in between all their other Co-Curricular commitments. They put together some fantastic performances and problem-solving solutions, and whilst we did not place in the finals, the foundation has been set for a fantastic opportunity to continue TOM as an amazing extra-curricular opportunity for high-ability students and creative minds alike. Well done to the following participants:

The Arts:
