St Andrews' TOM (Tournament of Minds) team are off to Australia again! 35 students from St Andrews Green Valley had a fantastic Sunday, competing in the Tournament of Minds at ISB in Bangkok. They have spent the past 6 weeks working on a challenge, using their creative, dramatic and problem-solving skills to fulfill a demanding range of criteria: they wrote scripts, created props and costumes, designed machines and recorded music and jingles for their presentations. They finally got to demonstrate what they had achieved in front of the judges on Sunday. It was an exciting challenging day for all of the teams involved - congratulations to them all on their fantastic collaboration and creativity!
Special congratulations to the Dimension Detectives, Munin, Preecha, Opal, Amy, Jakob, Arnon and Chin who came third in the Secondary Language and Literature challenge, and to the Unbeatable 7, Ella, Neisha, Jaa, Arthur, Pailin, Epee and Thomas who came second in the Primary Social Sciences challenge. They were narrowly pipped to the first position by The International School of Dhaka, which means that they were the top Thai team - and so they are off to Australia for the final in October - congratulations to the Unbeatable 7!
