On Friday 20th March, twelve girls from the Senior 2 class took part in a Mental Maths Competition known as the SuperTmatik Challenge. This challenge is held on an international basis – and rather than a competition, it is more of an educational game based on a pack of cards which combines mental stimulation and fun to develop skills in the four basic maths operations.
The participants had various training sessions during their lunchtime break in the last months prior to the competition. After a good number of rounds, the finalists were Courtney Ekezie, Nicole Fenech, Adriana Ebejer and Nicole Grixti, placing as winner, runner-up, 3rd and 4th respectively.
Courtney Ekezie and Nicole Fenech are to represent the school in what is known as the Grand Online Final in the coming months; in which they have to compete against students of their same category from all over the world.
