Congratulations to the Saints students who represented Australia at the International Mind Lab Olympics in Antalya, Turkey last week.
The Mind Lab program in the Junior School is a collection of hands-on strategy games that develop cognitive, emotional and social skills through play. Boys in Years 4 and 6 have the opportunity to learn through the Mind Lab program as part of their classroom program. In addition, Years 5 and 6 students can experience these activities through lunch-time and after-school sessions and eventually compete against each other to earn a place in the School’s representative teams. This team then competed against other South Australian schools and recently represented Australia.
I am pleased to say that our students performed well, and while they didn’t place, they competed with poise and conducted themselves well in the face of a high level of competition.
