Toolooa SHS Students Represent Rockhampton at Opti-MINDS State Finals.

Toolooa SHS Students Represent Rockhampton at
Opti-MINDS State Finals.
 
On the weekend of the 12th and 13th of October, Toolooa State High School represented the Rockhampton region at the 2013 State Finals of Opti-MINDS in Brisbane.
 
The only Gladstone team, made up of Afia (Fiona) Anzum, Jasmine Elliott, Protim Mir and Bradley Read, competed against public and private schools from all across Queensland and Western Australia.
 
The weekend was broken up into three main challenges – an ideas market, a spontaneous challenge and a long-term challenge.  Students in all three challenges were assessed on their creativity, presentation of ideas, lateral thinking and ability to work together as a team.
 
The four students were fantastic representatives and although they did not progress to the international finals, they worked well as a team and should be very proud of their achievements to date.
 
The team personified the Opti-MINDS catchphrase of ‘Unashamedly Excellent!’ and are already looking forward to participating in the 2014 Opti-MINDS challenge.
 
Congratulations on representing our school so well!
