This year we entered two teams from Year 6 into the Tournament of Minds Competition for the first time ever. Tournament of Minds is a State, National, and International Competition that challenges students to develop problem-solving skills. Tournament of Minds teaches students real world skills as it looks beyond traditional academic achievement as it encourages the pursuit of excellence with no boundaries.
This year there were over 1800 teams who competed nationwide with 120 teams who competed from Western Australia from 60 different schools. This year the tournament was a little different due to COVID-19 restrictions and teams were tasked with creating a 5-minute video that demonstrated a creative solution to an open ended problem. Both our teams that entered created interesting and dynamic videos that they should both be proud of.
One of our teams that entered received the highest honour available being awarded a distinction that places them in the top 10 Teams that competed. Go South Coast Baptist College!!!
