Herbertstown NS recently took part in The November Numeracy Challenge 2018 – an online maths competition contested by Mathletics schools from across Europe, the UK, the Middle East and Africa.
The competition was run over one week, seeing students compete in live, multi-player challenges plus answering self-paced adaptive maths curriculum questions, all using Mathletics.
Throughout the week, Herbertstown NS pupils were well placed on the national scoring charts and our classes featured very prominently in Ireland’s top 20 schools. Once the final results were totted up from all participating schools around the world, Herbertstown NS placed 75th out of over 400 schools. Upon closer inspection of the results, it became clear that Herbertstown NS was the highest ranked school from the Republic of Ireland!
Well done to everyone that put in such a huge effort both in school and at home.
Mathletics will continue to be a valuable resource for our pupils for the rest of the school year with plenty of certificates and prizes still to be won.
