On the last day of term, 8 intrepid members of Form 5 travelled South with Dr Morgan and Mrs Runciman to compete in a maths challenge hosted by the Newcastle High School for Girls. This was the first time we have competed in this fast-paced event. 

There was a range of challenging numerical calculations and problem solving questions which they worked in pairs to answer. Our pairs competed very well and two of them finished in 6th and 7th places out of 26. At the half way point one of our pairs was leading the competition but slipped back with the challenging problem solving section. The pupils were treated to a match tea afterwards before travelling back to be met by parents and to finally start their holiday! Well done to Amelie, Mhairi, Eliza, George, Molly C, Libby, Lara and Rosie!
