To All of our TOM supporters

We are writing to reassure you that we're closely monitoring the global health situation and continually assessing the advice from all relevant authorities including the World Health Organisation, the Australian Government Health Principal Protection Committee and the New Zealand government, and implementing their recommendations.

At this stage we are carefully considering all possibilities and options, and as a result we may need to offer an amended tournament program for 2020.

So while we are still inviting schools to register, payment will not be required until 17th July 2020.

Our ultimate aim is to do all we can to protect all of our TOM community. We will continue to update the website and social media with any changes as they occur so please continue to check back with us.

Thank you for your continued support of TOM and understanding of the precautions we are undertaking during these uncertain and challenging times.

The TOM experience

Watch the videos. Learn all about TOM in biteable bits


The learning from TOM can actually be applied to real life. The skills are those that students will use in further study and in the workplace
When I graduated from University and was applying for jobs, many of the interview tasks involved public speaking and team work. I was told I was hired because I had excellent communication and presentation skills, I could work well in a team and lead without being too dominating. I was able to use my time effectively and get along with the other candidates
There's a whole range of Leadership skills that come through from Tournament of Minds that are critical to your later life
My self-worth grew a bit and I became more confident to express my idea because no one was going to shut it down. I slowly just became more and more confident
It sounds a bit corny but the phrase of TOM 'it's the journey, not the destination'. I think it really is so true. At the end of the day it wasn't about winning, I loved the process. Just being involved in it was what I really loved
