Adds up to a great day
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.
