Mindful matters

SP students show that coming from different schools doesn't mean they can't work together

 

Mindful matters

So what if you're from a different school.

Students from different schools in SP (SB, CLS, MM, EEE, SMA and SMIT) showed their sense of unity as they came together to take part in the National Competition "Odyssey of The Mind, held on 13-14 April 2007.

The SP team emerged as the 3rd runner-up for the below 19 years category. With a budget of US$125, they had to do a creative performance, writing their own script and music, self-made props using recyled materials.

This is a problem solving game which fosters the development of creative thinking and problem-solving skills. Each participating team consists of 7 members and maximum 2 coaches.

SP had already sent 4 lecturers to be trained as coaches earlier.

Students that made up the SP team:
Reynold Kwok Peng Jee (Leader)
Nur Hidayah Binte Suhardjono (Co-Leader)
Xu Cuixia
Benjamin Yow Thiam Hui
Noor Hafiz Bin Ramli
Melissa Poon Yin Mei
Jeffery Lin Junyao
Snowlin Malar Elangovan (Support member)

Odyssey of the Mind is an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students. Students apply their creativity to solve problems that range from building mechanical devices to presenting their own interpretation of literary classics. They then bring their solutions to compete in a nation-wide level on 13 and 14 April 2007. The winner from each division will get to represent Singapore to compete with teams from other countries in the U.S.
