Maths Talent

MTQ

On Thursday the 23rd October the students that achieved a distinction or higher in the Maths Talent Quest attended the Victorian Presentation Ceremony to collect their awards. Three students from Princes Hill attended this year.

They were : Gabe Hopper (Year 7C) and Xavier Corteville (Year 7C) who entered ‘How Many Matchsticks Can Fit In a Power Pole?’ as a group project (Distinction Award).

They did very well as they were the only year 7 group projects to get an award.

Erica Smith (Year 7F) who entered ‘Proving Pythagoras’ as an individual project (Distinction). ‘Proving Pythagoras’ was also selected to be entered into the National Competition.  

On the day we listened to guest speaker Dr Katherine Seaton from La Trobe University talk about ‘Maths with Looms’. It was quite fun and she called people from the audience to help demonstrate things. Then we listened as various people came up to present the awards of the State Competition. At the end they did present the Distinction and High Distinction for the Nationals as Victoria was the State holding them this year. Along with our certificate we were all awarded with a $25 voucher for their maths store that they set up down the back and also could access online. They had some of the projects on display down the back and it was amazing to see how much some people had put into their projects. Overall it was a good day out and a great experience. I can’t wait to see what happens next year.

Well done Erica, Gabe and Xavier!

1788_Humanities_Notice_Board

The European arrival in Australia is one of the topics we study in Y9 Humanities. Australia Day, falling just before the resumption of the school year, affords a perfect opportunity for conversations about this historical event and its implications for the nation today. This display on the Humanities Notice Board is intended to stimulate, encourage and provoke students to think about our national day from a number of different and often conflicting perspectives.
