Devel­op­ing prob­lem solv­ing skills in our chil­dren

Southern Riverina news - - FOCUS ON EDUCATION -

Fin­ley Pub­lic School aims to pro­vide stim­u­lat­ing, sup­port­ive, safe and in­clu­sive learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for all our stu­dents, with Tour­na­ment of Minds play­ing a key role within the school.

Tour­na­ment of the Minds is a prob­lem-solv­ing pro­gram for teams of stu­dents across pri­mary and sec­ondary years.

Stu­dents are chal­lenged with open-ended prob­lems across a va­ri­ety of dis­ci­plines, com­pet­ing against other schools.

This pro­gram looks be­yond aca­demic achieve­ment with other ben­e­fits in­clud­ing prob­lem-solv­ing, in­ter­pret­ing, cre­ative think­ing and think­ing out­side the square and the use of tech­nol­ogy. Th­ese are all skills that will help stu­dents as they grow. Our first com­pe­ti­tion for the year is fast ap­proach­ing and is set for the end of Au­gust.
