Half Term Challenge - Mathematical Education – University of Liverpool - Merseyside
(Posted on 03/05/17)
Some students in Years 7 to 10 were given a ‘Half Term Challenge’ task written by Mathematical Education on Merseyside to complete during the February half term.
The Challenge paper was for Years 7 and 8 with the Senior Challenge for Years 9 and 10.
One thousand and sixty nine entries were received for the Senior Challenge and eight Christleton students won prizes overall. Out of ninety-two schools that entered, Christleton students had the highest number of prize winners, beating many of the fee paying and grammar schools in the region.
The prize winners in the Senior Challenge were invited to prize giving events at the University of Liverpool on Wednesday the 3rd of May 2017. Mr Holmes drove some Challenge prize winners and some parents in the school mini bus to the event.
On arrival at the event, students were given a voucher to spend on some maths books and took part in another tough maths quiz Mrs Day and Leah Parry Year 10 won prizes in this! After the prizes had been awarded, the Christleton High School students posed for a photo before heading home, with their vouchers in hand.
“I’m really proud of our students and delighted with the reward for their efforts,” said Mr Holmes as we were leaving the event.
