Toormina Public School Tournament Of the Minds

WHAT HAVE YOUR ACHIEVEMENTS BEEN SO FAR?

The team have been competing in the Tournament of Minds competition. This is a creative thinking, team competition that enhances teamwork and presentation skills. They have won their division, Primary Language Literature at Mid-North Coast region. They competed in Sydney and are now State winners. In October they will travel to Hobart to represent NSW at the International final against other Australian, NZ, Asian and African teams. 

WHY DID YOU APPLY FOR THIS GRANT?

 We applied for this grant because we need help raising funds to cover travel expenses. The school has provided some assistance, but we need to fund flights for the team members and their supporting parents.

HOW WILL THIS GRANT BENEFIT YOU? AND HOW DO YOU PLAN ON USING IT?

The grant will be divided equally among the team members to help pay for the travel expenses.

WHAT ARE YOU HOPES AND DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE?

The team hope to build on their success so far and take out the International round. The team hope to make their school and community proud. 

WHO INSPIRES YOU THE MOST?

Their teacher Mrs Perry is their biggest supporter who encourages the students to do their best work.
