HAVE SUM FUN MATHS TRIFECTA

Congratulations to our talented mathematicians who represented All Saints’ College in the annual Have Sum Fun Maths competitions. The competition is run by the Mathematical Association of WA and teams battle it out in a quiz-style format with four rounds of eight questions.

The students from Years 11 and 12 competed at John Curtin College of the Arts on Friday, 12 March and won with a perfect score of 32 out of 32 beating Applecross Senior High School, Kelmscott Senior High School and Melville Senior High School who comprised the top four teams.

The following Friday saw the Years 7 and 8 team compete at John Curtin while the Years 9 and 10 team remained at the College as we were the hosting school for this division. Both teams beat 30 other teams including Applecross Senior High School, Aquinas College, Trinity College and Scotch College in their respective divisions to complete the trifecta.

To win a single division is quite a challenge but to win all three divisions has only been done on one other occasion in the history of the competition!

Many thanks to Mr Phil Brockbank (Head of Mathematics), Ms Kellie Knoblauch and Ms Hannah Mast (Mathematics teachers) who helped to run the competition and support students at various venues.

 

Well done to the following students for their tremendous efforts:

 

Year 7 / 8 Team - Felicia, Jessie, Tejas, Xavier, Callum and Ivan

Year 9 / 10 Team - Kerry, Jing Quan, Aaliyah, Shaurya, Jason and Ben

Year 11 / 12 Team - Nikita, Xiaoyu, Julius, Lucas, Madhav, Michelle
