On a warm spring evening of 3 September, teams from Wynberg Girls’, along with teams from six other schools, attended a mathematics competition hosted at Wynberg Boys’ High School.  The event saw our teams, consisting of members from a wide range of grades, battle it out in eight rounds.  Between the KenKen puzzles of ever-increasing complexity, and the much-appreciated Lord of the Rings question, they were kept both challenged and entertained.

With learners given access to Wi-Fi, they made use of Wynberg Boys’ High’s Moodle website, where they could instantly submit their answers via devices and have them marked automatically.  Our grade 10 team, consisting of Zolisa Kapa, Aa’isha Dout, Shreya Naidu and Inseo Jeoung, came first in their grade.
