Year 9 Maths Game Day

On Wednesday 2 September, eight Braemar College students competed in the Year 9 Maths Games Day, which was part of the National Maths Week.

IMG_0859We were driven by Mr Hanlon in a mini bus down to a school in Williamstown.

Down there, in a large hall there were teams of four people from every school, of which, there were upwards of thirty.

Cooper Little, our top performer, spoke for all of us when he said “The Maths Games Day experience was challenging, but very enjoyable.”

The level of competition on the day was very high, and we didn’t place in the top schools, but it was a good time nonetheless.
