On 23rd August, a team of seven students represented Oxley Christian College in the regional Tournament of Minds (TOM) competition held at Mount Lilydale Mercy College. The team members were Jessica Cornish, William Spratt, Thomas Pallaghy, Katherine Parker, Rachael Hallang, Amaleigh Heads and Kamin Pallaghy.
TOM is a problem solving program for teams of students from both Primary and Secondary years. Students are required to solve demanding, open-ended challenges from one of the four disciplines – Applied Technology, Language Literature, Maths Engineering and Social Sciences.
Despite facing fierce competition from multiple teams from schools such as The Knox, Haileybury College, St Margaret’s, Berwick Grammar and The Peninsula School, our team won the Regional Finals to go on to the State Finals on the 14th September.
We are very proud of the achievements of our team, and would like to congratulate them on their success. Well done Jess, Will, Tom, Katie, Rachael, Amaleigh and Kamin!
