Maths Week is an event that is celebrated and marked on the New Zealand school calendar and involves an estimated audience of more than 250,000 students, teachers and parents from around New Zealand in the month of August. At Rise UP Academy we were able to be part of the celebration by having school excursions outside of the school that involved a range of maths skills and problem solving. Room 1,2 and 3 enjoyed their time at Pamure Ten Pin Bowling, Room 4 participated in some challenging rock climbing at JUMP and finally Room 5 and 6 took the plunge and experienced White Water Rafting for the first time. Ms Sifaheone who is the Numeracy Leader was able to organise and plan another successful maths week. We look forward to next year and making this an annual event. One of the highlights were ‘A minute to win it’.
