aria-labelledby="ctl00_PlaceHolderMain_Content_label" style="padding:0px;margin:0px;font-family:verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:10.6667px;display:inline;"><p style="margin-bottom:8px;margin-left:2px;padding:0px;line-height:1.6em;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">A TEAM of ecstatic students at St Oliver Plunkett School, Cannon Hill, have been crowned International Champions at this year’s Tournament of Minds (TOM) competition in Darwin.</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:8px;margin-left:2px;padding:0px;line-height:1.6em;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">Competing in the Language/Literature category, St Oliver Plunkett’s team of seven students, named ‘7 Chapters’ and ranging from Years 4-6, were given three hours to solve a complex problem based on classic literature, character traits and would be a benefit to society.</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:8px;margin-left:2px;padding:0px;line-height:1.6em;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">This required students to prepare thoroughly as they had to make representations, plan their own self-made props under a limited budget, and so forth.</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:8px;margin-left:2px;padding:0px;line-height:1.6em;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">They also had to complete a spontaneous four-minute challenge without any outside help, which tested the impromptu abilities of their minds.</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:8px;margin-left:2px;padding:0px;line-height:1.6em;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">Tournament of Minds offers students an opportunity to solve authentic, open-ended challenges that foster creative, divergent thinking while developing collaborative enterprise, excellence and teamwork.</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:8px;margin-left:2px;padding:0px;line-height:1.6em;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">Challenges are set in the Arts, Language Literature, Social Sciences and STEM.</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:8px;margin-left:2px;padding:0px;line-height:1.6em;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">St Oliver Plunkett Enrichment teacher Di Wilston, who accompanied ‘7 Chapters’ to Darwin, said they faced some of the best TOM teams from all Australian states and internationally.</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:8px;margin-left:2px;padding:0px;line-height:1.6em;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">Ms Wilson, who co-ordinates the school’s LEAP program, said the team presented dynamic and remarkable solutions to the problems presented.</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:8px;margin-left:2px;padding:0px;line-height:1.6em;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">“Each team member displayed individual capabilities whilst working together productively as a group to solve each challenge they faced,” she said.</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:8px;margin-left:2px;padding:0px;line-height:1.6em;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">“Being thrown a problem to solve within a limited time period using role play and teamwork was an excellent way to encourage students to become creative thinkers and great decision makers.”</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:8px;margin-left:2px;padding:0px;line-height:1.6em;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">TOM team member Cara Moffat said atmosphere was electric as they waited to hear the winners name being called.</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:8px;margin-left:2px;padding:0px;line-height:1.6em;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">“We couldn’t believe it when our name was called out,” she said.</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:8px;margin-left:2px;padding:0px;line-height:1.6em;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3"> “It was so amazing.</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:8px;margin-left:2px;padding:0px;line-height:1.6em;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">“We all just jumped around in ecstasy, hugging each other and screaming.”</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:8px;margin-left:2px;padding:0px;line-height:1.6em;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">The Year 6 student said the team worked really well together.</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:8px;margin-left:2px;padding:0px;line-height:1.6em;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">“We listen to each other and like to share ideas.</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:8px;margin-left:2px;padding:0px;line-height:1.6em;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">“We spent lots of our lunch times in the library working on our ideas.”</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:8px;margin-left:2px;padding:0px;line-height:1.6em;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">Cara said Ms Wilson was a real inspiration for the team.</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:8px;margin-left:2px;padding:0px;line-height:1.6em;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">“She’s been a really great help and encouraged us to be the best we can be.</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:8px;margin-left:2px;padding:0px;line-height:1.6em;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">Principal Paul Blinkhoff said it was a massive effort from the students, their families, the staff involved and the whole school community.</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:8px;margin-left:2px;padding:0px;line-height:1.6em;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">“I, along with the rest of our school community, am very proud of our students’ achievement at the Tournament of Minds international finals,” he said.</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:8px;margin-left:2px;padding:0px;line-height:1.6em;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">“We are proud of all our students engaged in the school’s LEAP program, which number around the 60 mark.</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:8px;margin-left:2px;padding:0px;line-height:1.6em;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">“It’s only in its second year of existence at St Ollies, and we are excited about where we can take it from here,” he said.</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:8px;margin-left:2px;padding:0px;line-height:1.6em;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">Paul said the school’s LEAP program offered students a range of extension activities in addition to classroom learning opportunities.</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:8px;margin-left:2px;padding:0px;line-height:1.6em;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">He said in addition to the Tournament of Minds competition, Ms Wilson co-ordinated STEM activities, which included robotics, coding and the engagement in maker spaces and she also accompanied the school’s Robocup team to Melbourne to compete in the National Robotics competition.</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:8px;margin-left:2px;padding:0px;line-height:1.6em;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">St Oliver Plunkett Parish Priest Fr Eric Alleaume said he was flabbergasted but not surprised when he heard the news the team had been crowned International champions.</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:8px;margin-left:2px;padding:0px;line-height:1.6em;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">“These kids doing their best is typical of what they do here at this school,” he said.</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:8px;margin-left:2px;padding:0px;line-height:1.6em;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">“They are extraordinary and that’s the best part about it.</span></p><p style="margin-bottom:8px;margin-left:2px;padding:0px;line-height:1.6em;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3">“Our future is in very, very good hands,” he said.​<br></span></p><p
