Tangara has been named national champions in the Australia-wide Maths Ninja Challenge, which took place online from 6-17 March 2017.
Run by Manga High, the goal of the Maths Ninja Challenge is to earn as many points as possible over the 12 days of the competition. Students who achieved 100-149 points will receive a bronze medal, those with 150-199 points will receive a silver medal, and those who earned 200+ points a gold medal. The school with the greatest number of points are declared national champions.
Tangara placed first out of 232 Primary and Secondary schools nation-wide, most of whom have a much larger student population than Tangara.
Tangara’s Grace Zeng (Year 4) received the most points out of all 10,994 students who took part in the challenge across Australia, and Joann Min (also Year 4) was second place in the country. Both students answered over 6,000 Maths questions each during the 12-day challenge.
A representative from the Maths Ninja Challenge attended the Primary School Assembly on Friday 31 March to award 25 Gold Medal, 4 Silver Medals and 15 Bronze Medals to the high achieving Tangara students, as well as to declare Tangara the national champions.
What a wonderful privilege for Tangara. Well done to all those who participated!
