Recently, senior Maths students traveled to Perth with Mr Snelson and Mr Dunn to compete in the Have Sum Fun maths competition, held annually at Trinity College. Three BCC teams were entered into the competition, with a Marist team consisting of Desiree Bernhardt, Sophia Musitano, Emily Sykes, Allegra Mazza-Parton and Trinity Mangano placing 9th overall! The other teams, one from Marist and the other a combined Marist-Mercy team, placed 27th and 35th respectively. This was a very good effort from all the students who participated, as there were a total of 39 teams competing at Trinity college, with another 40 teams competing at another venue in Perth.
Once again BCC hosted the annual Year 7/8 and Year 9/10 Competition Have Sum Fun Mathematics competition with teams from a large number of school across the south west. Congratulations to all of our students who participated and to the Year 9/Year 10 team of Om Heble, Sam Lee, Breanna Barraclough, Andre Lachica, Ruby Gilroy and Miriam Bertola on winning their division.
Overall, fantastic results from all teams! It was a great experience for the students, and the competitive atmosphere was both fun and thrilling. Have Sum Fun is definitely an event for passionate maths students to look forward to participating in next year!
