Maths Team Tournament

Maths Teams Tournament
On May 16, 32 keen Maths students travelled to the annual Maths Teams tournament to participate in one of the biggest Maths competitions on the North side of Brisbane.  Each year, Narangba Valley SHS hosts this excellent event that allows the best and brightest Maths students from both state and private schools to compete against each other for trophies in their particular age group – Year 7/8, 9/10 and 11/12.

This year Caboolture entered two teams in each division and even though several talented senior students could not participate in the event this year due to other commitments, all teams put in their best effort and performed well. The enthusiasm and team spirit was high among the teams and all students enjoyed the experience.  
Considering the tough competition, from other schools including St Patricks College, Mueller College and Murrumba State College, our teams performed solidly overall with our Years 7 & 8 teams achieving a 17th and 44th place out of 75 teams, our Years 9 & 10 teams placing in 24th and 37th position out of 54 teams and our senior teams positioned in 24th and 27th place out of 54 teams.
Thank you to all participating students for their effort and their enthusiasm on the day. Thank you     also to our wonderful supervisors, Taleigha Bell, Matthew Hayes (pre-service teacher), Mrs Thomson, Hayley Rufus and Cody Thompson, without their help our teams would not be able to compete.
