The Weekly Wrap

Congratulations and Well Done 

  • A big well done to our Tournament of Minds team who presented their solution to a six-week long term challenge in front of a panel of judges at Flinders University today – with an ‘Australiana take’ on the Wizard of Oz. 
  • Congratulations to Emily, Carys, Amelie, Will, Abbie and Olivia for their outstanding effort over the last six weeks practising and rehearsing. Their performance was enjoyable to watch and showed how well the team worked together to present such a creative solution. Special thanks to Miss Grant for expertly facilitating the team and for her after-hours commitment to supporting the team. Great support on the day from families too.
  • TOURNAMENT HONOURS – Double congratulations to the team who late this afternoon were awarded ‘Tournament Honours’ – for achieving in the top 15% of teams within their primary school division. An outstanding achievement. For over twenty years, Craigburn has entered teams into the annual Tournament of Minds competition held in September at Flinders University. Tournament of Minds (TOM) is a problem solving challenge for teams of students from both primary and secondary years. They are required to solve demanding, open-ended challenges in Science Technology Engineering Mathematics (STEM) and The Arts.
