Gecko Maths –Where It Is Hip To B Square

Teams of students from Year 7, Peak School and Glenealy School made their Maths knowledge count at the Gecko Maths competition on the, 2 March 2018. For 40 mins teams worked together to find the answer to each question before sending their runner to collect the next.

It was a close contest resulting in a 3 way tie between teams from each of the primary schools, and the Nanson House team. A tie-breaker was played to decide the winning team.

Head of Maths, Mr Matt Fowler said, “It was a nail-biting finish. Well done to Jovan Choi, Kylie Wang, Chloe Wong and Curtis Yip from Nanson who worked superbly as a team to get into that position. In the end they were literally pipped at the post by the Peak School team by a fraction of a second in the tie-breaker, which lead to dramatic scenes of celebration in the school hall.”

Head of Maths, Mr Matt Fowler said, “Congratulations to all the teams who had made it through the heats, beating off stiff competition from students in their respective Houses.”
