Last Wednesday, Mrs Wilson took a Year 7 and a Year 8 team Hornbrook Arena to this annual competition pitting the best of Canterbury’s mathematicians against each other in teams of four. The Year 7 team of Hanna North, Jacob Andrist, Cameron Beach and Anouk Hector- Taylor managed to get 75 points and finished in a mid-top table position out of 97 teams. Our Year 8 team performed incredibly well to finish a tight race which was incredibly exciting (and nerve wracking) to watch. The Year 8 team came third place out of 102 teams and the team was made up of Sam Higgins, Aaron Moore, Callum Hynes and James Wright. We are all very proud of both teams who kept their heads down, engaging in ensuring they aimed for the golden ticket 100 score, for the whole 30 minutes.
