Adds up to a great day

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

d461843 WITH num­bers on their side, four Bel­may Pri­mary School stu­dents com­peted in the grand final of the AFG in­ter­school Numero chal­lenge last Thurs­day.

The math­e­mat­ics com­pe­ti­tion in­volves four events in­clud­ing the in­di­vid­ual top take, where stu­dents have to solve a maths chal­lenge by them­selves, and team top take, where they com­bine their problem solv­ing skills.

The Bel­may stu­dents scored in the top six in both events.

As this year’s grand final hosts, Bel­may’s Year 4-5 teacher and event co-or­di­na­tor Han­nah Klauz said the stu­dents did a good job and had a fan­tas­tic time.

“The com­pe­ti­tion is a great way for kids who ex­cel in the class­room to show what they can do,” she said.

Ex­cel­sior Pri­mary School in Can­ning Vale took the win­ner’s tro­phy for the fifth year in a row, col­lect­ing $1000, with Hock­ing Pri­mary School sec­ond and Aran­more Catholic Col­lege in Leed­erville third.
