2 TOURNAMENT OF MINDS AUSTRALASIAN/ PACIFIC FINALS Last Saturday our two teams spent all day preparing for the finals competition. They were given challenges and locked down while they worked on the solution. It was fantastic to observe the presentations by the four NT representative teams. The skill, enthusiasm, knowledge and enjoyment portrayed by all teams were amazing and inspiring. On Thursday 16th October our two winning teams travel to Melbourne to compete in the Australasian/ Pacific finals. They will be staying with the teams from Darwin Middle and Kormilda as the NT representative teams. The opening ceremony is on Friday morning followed by a survivor challenge at the Melbourne Zoo. Our teams will then visit the Melbourne Museum to explore for the afternoon. Saturday will be a very busy day for our students. Once they arrive at the finals they will be locked down for 3 hours and need to work as a team with no adult assistance. During this time they need to complete a challenge and create a performance to represent a solution to the problem. After lunch all teams will perform and then they have a special dinner and awards ceremony. The teams fly back to Darwin on Sunday morning. I would particularly like to thank Miss Temira Wallis and Mrs Kathleen Baker Brown for their dedication and support in working with the students and parents in organising the interstate experience. We wish the teachers and students the best on this amazing journey and know that they will learn so many important life skills and represent our school and the Northern Territory in an enthusiastic, responsible and collaborative manner. As part of the Survivor challenge the teams had to send in a photo depicting a tribal tableau with a survivor theme and these are the photos they chose to pose for. Our team members are; Jade Lay, Camryn Stacey, Ashlee Cavanough, Cara Doherty, Fisher Harris, Diarmid Browne, Muchalinda Crawford, Tess Jungfer, Hannes Dielenberg, Ben Kronk, Zita Varatharajan, Chloe Everingham, Mitchell Turner, Rosanna Materazzo, Mark Bawden-Hill, Laleeta Das, Jozsef Everingham, Ben Lambert, Ian Orr, Meg Marker, Indi Evans, Bernie Dunn, Kada Hutt, Jacob Lay, Maggie OLoughlin and Andrew Materazzo .
