Optiminds 2014

Meg, Grace, Lillian, Bani, Ashdyn, Ella and Bella present their aussie tale. ​
Congratulations to our two teams who represented Gabbinbar at the Regional Optiminds Challenge held on Sunday 24 August at UQ Gatton. Both teams did a fantastic job of solving the challenges, preparing presentations (scripts and props), then presenting on the day.

In the language and literature challenge students created a new true-blue aussie tale for children which featured the  character the Muddle-Headed Wombat.  Well done to Meg, Grace, Lillian, Bani, Ashdyn, Ella and Bella on your well-toltale.

In the social sciences challenge students considered if John Lennon’s world described in Imagine, where no identity groups exist, is an ideal world. They concluded that Australia is better off enjoying the richness of other cultures.  Congratulations to Ella,  Jessica, Catherine, Jack, Bailee, Lola and Lulu on your imaginatively presented skit.
