During Semester 2 children from across the school participated in the Primary Maths Challenge, which was organised by the Primary Mathematics Association.

Throughout the challenge children worked individually, or as part of small groups, investigating the mathematics of an area of interest to them.

The high quality and creativity of the investigations, as well as the time and effort all students put into them, is to be celebrated. Once again SPW students were very successful in the State wide competition.

Congratulations to our State Winners

SPW had three State Winners who were presented with their prizes by the Minister for Education, John Gardner, at a special ceremony at the beginning of November.

Year 1 State Winner: Sophia T with ‘Epic Flight Centenary’
Year 2 State Winner: Jonas L with ‘Daddies and Mummies stop cutting trees please’.
Year 3 State Winner: Chelsea I with her coding entry: ‘World of Adventures’.

In participating in a challenge such as this, SPW students have again displayed many of the Learner Profile qualities embodied in the International Primary Years Programme Baccalaureate curriculum.

Congratulations to you all.

The Primary Maths Challenge is part of the Extra and Co-Curricular program at SPW. To express an interest for your child to participate in 2020 or to find out more information please contact Tina Day.
