Tournament of Minds

Tournament of Minds is a problem solving program for teams of students from both primary and secondary years. They are required to solve demanding, open-ended challenges from one of the following disciplines:
  • Language Literature 
  • Maths Engineering 
  • Social Sciences 
Tournament of Minds is an opportunity for students with a passion for learning and problem solving to demonstrate their skills and talents in an exciting, vibrant, and public way.

Tournament of Minds has been one of the fastest growing national interschool programs to challenge the youth of Australia and is now expanding internationally. It provides for the ever increasing demand for sophisticated, educational opportunities. The rapidly increasing and widespread involvement of thousands of participants throughout Australia and internationally, demonstrates that Tournament of Minds is not only a worthwhile investment in the education of our youth, but is also an integral part of our collective future.

In Perth for TOM

I'm off to Perth tomorrow to accompany Anneke to the National Championships of the Tournament of Minds.
Her team won the ACT Finals six weeks ago, and we have been madly fund-raising to get them to Perth.

Back next week....

Sunday Pancakes

I'm in the kitchen making pancakes for my family, enjoying iTunes booming from the corner.

Amanda is having a lie in and I can hear the kids up to something.

Life is good - take a moment to enjoy it.....
