The Learning Extension classroom has been very busy in the last few weeks. Students have been busy preparing for the Tournament of Minds; making costumes, painting a replica of the Mona Lisa (go Leonardo!), rehearsing lines, and making an invisible contraption while practising for the spontaneous challenge.
Students went to ECU Joondalup on Saturday, 29 August to perform in front of the judges. Despite their nerves and some significant technical difficulties, both teams got brilliant feedback from the judges who were very encouraging. Quite a few “excellent” boxes were ticked for the team who eliminated Shakespeare and King Henry VIII from history on reality TV, and the engineering judge complimented the team on the ingenuity of their design for picking up their water bottle. It was a lot of hard work and a big thank you to all the parents who drove the teams a long way and were very supportive of their efforts!
