The Tournament of Minds: The Next Challenge ( or The Next Chapter!)
We are pleased to announce that after competing and winning the Language and Literature challenge in the year 5/6 category, against other Schools in New Zealand, the 7 students, Brierley, Connor, Emma, Jacob, Killarney, Lucy, and Stephanie have gained a spot to compete at the Austalasian Pacific Tournament Finals in Melbourne next month, on the 18th October. This is absolutely fantastic news for the students, their families and the Tawhai School Community. These children have proved that with collaborative teamwork, and a real sense of self belief, they are capable of achieving great things, and have effectively put Tawhai School and Stokes Valley on the map.
As the tournament in Australia is only a month away, fundraising has begun in earnest. We would be most grateful for any donations from individuals or businesses to assist the children in their travel costs and expenses.
Please take a moment to read the attached PDF Form if you would like to make a donation or if you know of a business who would like to sponsor the students.
