On Wednesday 2 August a group of some of our finest Year 8 Mathematicians (and Maths staff); Kiki Argyros, Lydia Tan, Amelia Kenny, Freya Bryson, Joshua Choong, Matthew Cobb, Oliver Huang, Marlin Ma, Ms Kropp and Ms Rich, braved the freezing temperatures and early morning traffic to attend the Annual MAV Penleigh Essendon Grammar Year 8 Maths Games Day. In attendance, there were over 90 teams from a variety of schools from Melbourne and surrounds. At the end of the day, although Tintern Grammar was not in the top 10, the students had enjoyed the event and participated in fun games of chance, puzzles and challenging problem-solving activities. It was certainly a great opportunity for our students to extend themselves and measure themselves against students from other schools.
As usual, our terrific students represented Tintern Grammar with style and poise and displayed great sportsmanship (mathspeopleship) and enthusiasm throughout the day.
