Prior to the competition we held a practice day on Thursday 2 September from 9.30am until the end of the school day. Team members came prepared with scripts, costumes and their final products. What most impressed me as a Coordinator spanning 29 years with Tournament of Minds, was the way the team members worked together to solve the problems in their specific disciplines with creativity and collaboration that was admirable.
Our school can be proud of each one of you for the brilliant support you gave each other and the camaraderie and passion you each showed for your wonderful creations. Looking forward to watching you develop as you continue the leadership and fun inlearning in the future."
