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.

Why is free, unstructured play important?
Wednesday February 6th , the H.I.S. PYP students will be participating in Global School Play Day to help raise awareness of the importance of play. There are countless benefits that help children develop physically, emotionally and socially.
On Wednesday this week, students are encouraged to bring their toys from home. Once they get to school the rules are: no screens or devices, no structure, just play all day long!
Please visit www.globalplayday.com for more information and to watch Peter Gray’s TedX lecture, The Decline of Play to increase your knowledge on the importance of play.
