This year’s focus for Maths Weeks at Gallen CS was ‘Problem-Solving’ while focusing on student engagement.
To include the whole school in problem-solving, they had a two-layered competition. One was the whole school and the other was a focus on the maths classes.
The whole school competition was divided in to Junior, Senior and first year competition. These were displayed in the school outside of the maths room where an entry box was looked after each day by Kealen Murry, Calvin Keena and Adam
Fletcher, all in TY.
The winners of €10 call credit are:
1st - Eoin Tighe
Junior - Eoin Sheridan
Senior - Adam Fletcher
Within classes the winners of each competition are listed below. The prizes that they received were Rubik’s cubes which promote problem solving and keep the mind challenged and active.
The student engagement in the activities was excellent and school would like to congratulate all involved, including Mrs. Scully who won the staff prize.
