Tournament of Minds: Year 5 and 6 Students

Are you...

  • Dramatic? 
  • Arty? 
  • Great with ICT? 
  • An outside of the box thinker? 
  • Creative? 
  • A problem solver? 
  • A year 5 or 6 student? 

If you said yes to any of the above, then Tournament of Minds might be for you. Even if you didn't say yes to any of the above, Tournament of Minds might still be for you.

Tournament of Minds is a creative, problem solving, dramatic, collaborative, fully student led and completed project. You are given a problem and then asked to present your answer in a dramatic (drama) way in front of judges. Amongst other things, you will be assessed on how creative your answer and presentation are and how well you work together as a team. Collaboration and being a team player are key, as adults are not allowed to help at all.


Think you might be interested? Or you just want to check it out and see what it is all about? Meet in Mawhero on Friday after school. We will provide a light snack, followed by some activities to give you an idea what Tournament of Minds is all about. We will start at 3:15 pm and be finished by 4:15pm.

Just to allow us to plan appropriately, please let Urs or Demelza know whether you are keen to attend.
