They are required to solve demanding, open-ended challenges from four disciplines. Both St. Oran's teams chose to enter the Language Literature Challenge entitled "And the nominations are.....". The students had to produce a trailer and present it to the "Nominations Committee". The Secondary team chose "Armageddon" and the Intermediate team chose "Cool Runnings". For six weeks leading up to tournament day students worked independently to develop a solution. On the day the teams also took part in the "Spontaneous Challenge" which requires students to think outside the square. Tournament of Minds is an opportunity for students with a passion for learning and problem-solving to demonstrate their skills and talents in an exciting and vibrant, public way.

Scout earns Queen's award Baden Brown St Joseph s Venturer Scout Baden Brown has earned the highest achievement possible as a youth member of New Zealand Scouting. Baden completed his Queen s Scout Award, training in leader- ship skills, risk management, campcraft and life skills. This award is the culmination of several years hard work and determination, including several tramps (one of four days), safety modules, new skills and physical challenges. The son of Sheryl and Murray Brown, Baden has been a member of St Joseph s Scout Group since he was 6, starting in Keas, then moving into Cubs, then Scouts and finally, Venturers. He is the 45th Venturer to have his name put on the St Joseph s Group s honours board. Baden attended the past six New Zealand Jamborees, beginning with Te Anau in 1996, Mystery Creek in 2002, Feilding in 2005, Christchurch in 2008, and the 19th New Zea- land Jamboree in Ham- ilton at the start of this year. Here he helped to deliver the programme at the off-site base at Finlay Park for 500 Scouts each day, as well as constructing over- night shelters for the older Scouts and running a Ven- turing Explained session for them. Baden also attended the 11th New Zealand Venture in Wellington in 2010, gaining his PADI pen water diving licence. He has been a member of the orchestra for Hutt Valley Gang Show. Baden is a year 13 student at St Patrick s College and will be an exchange student to France for a year in 2012. On his return to New Zealand, he is looking to join Rover Scouts, the adult service section of Scout- ing.
