Last Tuesday ten of our boys took part in the Aoraki Maths Quiz night.
This event was hosted at Boys’ High School and attracted school teams from all over Mid and South Canterbury.
Our boys were divided into year group teams that raced the clock to answer as many maths questions as possible within a 30 minute timeframe.
Our Year 7 team, consisting of Luke Skinner, Lachie Short and Hugh Saunders, went first and managed to secure an overall win in their section, achieving an impressive score of 18/20.
Later in the evening we fielded two teams in the Year 8 section. The boys involved in this were: Mitchell Bowmar, Ben Pawsey, Jock Rollinson, Scott Gregan, Lewis McLauchlan, Sam Wilson and Harry Schmack. Both teams competed well and managed to complete the tasks within the time limit.
A very big congratulations to all of our boys involved – a wonderful effort.
