10C win Children in Crossfire Maths Challenge
Year 10 pupils from St. Mary’s Grammar School, Magherafelt have won first prize in Quiz 5 of the Children in Crossfire Maths Challenge which was held recently.
All Key Stage 3 classes took part in the challenge which aims to create links between the teaching and learning of Mathematics, global awareness and social responsibility whilst also raising awareness for the charity. Students worked in groups and applied their mathematical knowledge with cross-curricular links while also using their numeracy and problem solving skills.
“Well done to all those involved.” Principal Ms D Gillespie
2017 was the first time in which St. Mary’s had entered the competition, with students raising a total of £329.75 for the charity. Children in Crossfire recently presented Mr Tracey and his 10C class with their prize.
