Granite Belt Maths Team Challenge

Granite Belt Maths Team Challenge

The end of Term 3 saw the culminating activity of our problem-solving program for the Year 5 and 6 students. After two terms of Maths Olympiads and a month of lunch time practice, 16 students represented St Joseph’s School in the Primary section of the Granite Belt Maths Team Challenge. Traditionally St Joseph’s students have performed well in this competition. 2018 was to prove no different with our Number One team winning first prize and our second team placed third. Our third team finished in sixth position, just 8 points behind third place. Well done to all students on your commitment to your ongoing learning and acceptance of the challenge offered.

The winning team was made up of Claire Danzey, Claire Williamson, Jacob Hennoste, Clancy Moncada and Sam Ellis. Third place went to Jo Pettricitto, Sophie Brunckhorst, Maggie Gallaway, Freya Creer and Sophie Carmichael. Other students who competed were Patrick Brown, Taneisha Marino, Sonny Fragus, Heidi Favaro and Michael Gasparin. Thanks to Monique Wust and Kim Badcock for helping to supervise.

Our Secondary team also competed in the Year 7 challenge. After finishing second in 2017, a mere one point turned the tables with our team winning by one point. Well done Hannah Widderick, Taylah Organ, Eliza Telfer, Eloise Knight and Sophie Day.
