The Royal Russell Primary Mathematics Olympiad - May 2012
In the competition part of the afternoon, Newton Prep was the overall winner of the Olympiad Trophy, with Amesbury School runners-up and Oak Lodge in third place. Our own Junior School Team achieved a creditable ninth place.
Pupils were then treated to a very enjoyable and interactive talk by Rob Eastaway on Mathematical Magic, including exploring magic squares and mind-reading cards. Rob is one of the UK's leading popular writers of mathematical books for a non-specialist audience.
The day was successfully rounded off with afternoon tea for children, parents and visiting teachers and the final presentation of prizes by the Headmaster. Thank you to Mrs Corinne Fernandes and Mrs Smith for coordinating this successful event.
