Our annual 24 Game Math Competition between Grades 3, 4 and 5 had 36 competitors. For some it was their first experience of this competition and for others, the second or third time of competing. We were proud of the effort the students made both in preparing and at the event.
The challenge is to manipulate 4 numbers to make 24. Speed is of the essence! It is a serious competition but there was fun too. The top 8 scorers now have the opportunity to travel to Hanover in May to compete in the International Schools of Germany competition.
We are thankful for the support of Grade 6 students as judges as well as a couple of students from DP and a few teachers. Although a Primary event, it is well supported throughout the school.
We look forward to reporting how our finalists get on at Hannover. Traditionally, our students do very well, returning with winners’ trophies.
