The following opportunities are available this month and are being promoted in the Figleaf. Why not get involved in something?
Tournament of the Minds
Tournament of the Minds has started running in Term 2, meeting every Thursday after school in K5.
TOM is a problem solving competition for students in Years 7 to 10 in which teams compete against other schools by solving a mixture of challenges.
William Carey will be sending a team to represent the school at the regional finals in mid-August.
The Philosophy Program has started running in K5 every Friday lunchtime in Week A. So far we have looked at logical loops, paradoxes and ethical issues. Any interested students in Years 7-11 are welcome to come along!
Advanced Learning Projects (ALPs)
A number of students started working on a project in Term One. We currently have 24 students working on an ALPs and 10 teachers supervising.
Some of the projects students are working on this year include CREST projects, creative writing, learning a language, psychology, photography and online courses.
Mathematics Challenge for Young Australians
The Mathematics Challenge for Young Australians is targeted towards students who have demonstrated a talent in mathematics and would like to develop this further.
The challenge lasts for 16 weeks between April and September. Students have begun working through a number of difficult mathematical problems!
