Tournament Of Minds - Year 5 & 6

On 28th of August a primary team of Year 5 and 6 students, participated in The Tournament of the Minds, regional competition at Deakin University. Students trained in Term 2 developing thinking, co-operative, collaborative and organisation skills. This concluded with a mini Tournament of the Minds on campus, giving valuable experience to the coming Long term and Spontaneous problems at the real competition. In Term 3, students selected a problem in the area of Social Science and undertook the process of understanding the problem and presenting their solutions to a panel of 3 judges. The students presented a well-crafted explanation of the problem and the judges commented on their original ideas. The students stated they enjoyed both the mini and main tournament, the drama element in their presentation and designing their props and costumes.
