Throughout the Term, SCBC Primary and Secondary students have participated in the Tournament of the Minds (TOMs) project-based competition as part of the enrichment programs.
TOM is an International educational program ‘challenging the world’ to solve authentic, open-ended challenges that foster creative, divergent thinking whilst developing collaborative enterprise, excellence and teamwork. The primary team comprised of Matthew, Isabella, Olivia, Michael, Kaiden, Blake and Samuel. They entered the STEM division, where they presented on the history and importance of gold and created a moving platform to display a 300g gold nugget from all angles.
The secondary team comprised of Jade, Katy, Layla, Lily, Wayne, SJ and Liam. They entered the Arts challenge, where they had to solve the mystery of a person who had lost their memory by identifying their cultural body paint, dress and jewellery. The secondary team earned an honours award for their division. Well done to both SCBC teams!
