A joyous day celebrating creativity, problem-solving and team work was held at Caloundra Christian College College on Saturday, August 26th. 47 teams from around the Sunshine Coast registered to participate in the Sunshine Coast Regional Opti-MINDS event. Teams represented State Schools, Lutheran Schools and a variety of Independent Schools. It was a perfect day with hundreds of strangers spending the day happily enjoying the sun and celebrating the unashamedly excellent talents of each and every student as they presented their solutions to the challenges they had worked on the for the last 6-7 weeks.

It takes a village to raise a child and it took a village to make all of this happen in such wonderful way. The efforts of the Caloundra Christian College community, who helped to make the day run smoothly and be enjoyable for everyone, are to be commended. The efforts of the volunteer teachers, friends and parents who were judges, room monitors, scorers, registration supervisor, merchandise person and those who did other jobs were greatly appreciated.

Here are the results.
