District 7 Maths Quiz

During Numeracy Month every year, one of the prominent activities organized by District Seven’s Numeracy Committee is a Mathematics quiz. The competition is always held among all eleven Primary Schools and between the two Secondary Schools within the district. It targets Grade 5 students from the primary schools and Form 3 students from the Secondary schools. The primary schools are: Banse La Grace R.C. Combined, Delcer R.C. Combined, Dugard R.C. Combined, Laborie Boys Primary, Laborie Girls Primary, Mongouge Combined, Reunion R.C. Primary, Riviere Doree Anglican Primary, Roblot Combined, Piaye Combined and Saltibus R.C. Combined. The two Secondary Schools are Piaye and Choiseul.
This year’s Primary Mathematics quiz was held on Wednesday, 16 November at the Piaye Primary School. Each school was represented by one participant. The participants were a mixture of boys and girls chosen by their grade teacher. The Saltibus R.C. Combined was represented by V. Roberts.
The days programme included prayers, the National Anthem, Welcome remarks by the Acting principal, Ms. Erlyn Henry and remarks by the District Education Officer, Mrs. Kay Clarke – Nicholas.
