Year 6 MAV Games Day

Wednesday, September 13, 2023

On Friday the 8th of August, eight Year 6 students had the opportunity to represent our school at the Mathematical Association of Victoria (MAV) Statewide Games Day at Genazzano FCJ College in Kew. This was the fourth group to represent us this year, after the Year 3s, 4s and 5s already had their Games Days earlier this term (see previous newsletters for stories and photos). While some of the Year 6 students were lucky enough to participate in a MAV Games Day last year, for many it was their first time and they were both excited and nervous on the bus ride to Kew. This is one of the largest events, with over 200 students present from all over the state. As in the other year level events, there were a mix of individual and team problem-solving and games-based activities, which made our students think hard while still having lots of fun. Unlike at other events, this Games Day had fun trivia and random spot prizes throughout the day, and one of our students was lucky to win one… bringing a couple of fun mathematical card games back to school.

Congratulations to the participating students for a wonderful day of mathematical fun. Here’s hoping they continue to enjoy and pursue maths in the same way as they head off to secondary school next year.
