Tournament of Minds

From our Academic Enrichment Coordinator, Stephanie Boyce

An exciting new opportunity for students to showcase their individual gifts and talents in a collaborative, creative manner.

Tournament of Minds is a problem-solving program for teams of students from both primary and secondary years. The tournament’s aim is to enhance the potential of our youth by developing diverse skills, enterprise, time management, and the discipline to work collaboratively within a challenging and competitive environment.

They are required to solve demanding, open-ended challenges from one of the following disciplines: STEM, The Arts, Language Literature, and Social Sciences. The team will comprise of students in Year 7 to 10, with preparation beginning in Term 2, and the Challenge itself taking place in Term 3.

This is a diverse extra-curricular program that allows students to utilise their skills in teamwork and problem solving beyond the classroom. This program is for students of ALL abilities and skill levels, especially those who love to be creative and solve challenges.
