On Saturday, 19 August, Al Siraat College students competed in the Tournament of Minds (TOM) at La Trobe University, Bundoora campus. Our seven teams participated in the STEM Challenge, The Arts and Language Literature Challenge.
The teams had 10 minutes to present their Long-Term Challenge to an audience and panel of judges in the confined space of a three metre by three metre performance area. The teams also participated in a Spontaneous Challenge, which required them to think on their feet and work collaboratively as a team. There are many rules and requirements that teams need to follow to complete their Challenge.
We are proud of our Al Siraat Team students and would like to congratulate them on their outstanding performance for our 4th Year TOM participation on Tournament Day. The experiences they had throughout preparing and presenting the Challenge on the day were stimulating, thought provoking and amazing. Our students were able to take the challenge and explore the possibilities of ideas which aim to develop them as problem solvers, communicators, thinkers and working collaboratively as a team. Students are also awarded with TOM certificates for their participation.
A huge appreciation to TOM parents who have been supportive, encouraging and providing their assistance in getting the students together on Tournament Day. Your presence, commitment and enthusiasm have made a huge impact in our students’ involvement in TOM.
We would also like to say A BIG THANK YOU to our Learning Enrichment Team: Ms Nausheen, Ms Amy, Ms Ayesha M., Ms Yessra, Ms Rishma, Ms Hajera, Ms Aliya and staff: Ms Sheerin, Mr Iszal, for facilitating our students and all staff who have been supporting us throughout the process of Tournament of Minds.
It has been a remarkable journey for Al Siraat College being part of Tournament of Minds this year which led to the success of the program.
