Our Success in the Kangaroo Competition

Math is fun! Shortly before Easter our students were involved in the Kangaroo Mathematics Competition.  They did a fantastic job deliberating over, and used their creativity to solve various problems. Everyone agreed: “Math is fun!”

The results were announced at the beginning of June. All of the students were happy to receive their certificates, but even happier to receive the puzzle, “Double Tantrix”.  The students tried it out immediately and it has been a hit ever since.

Luisa from 4a made the longest Kangaroo jump in the school with the most number of consecutive answers correct.

Kyra and Felix from 5a won the nation-wide third prize – with over 170,000 participants from grade five, this is a fantastic achievement.

Well done to everyone involved.  You can all be very proud of your efforts!
