The study of mathematics is mandatory from Kindergarten to Year 10. 

By studying mathematics, students learn to work mathematically – developing fluency, understanding, problem-solving, reasoning and communication skills.

The syllabus consists of the following strands:

  • number and algebra
  • measurement and geometry
  • statistics and probability.

Maths olympiad

A group of students from Year 5 and 6 students have been chosen to represent our school in the Maths Olympiad competitions. These competitions require students to use creative problem solving skills in order to complete a set of questions.

The annual APSMO Maths Olympiads have been operating since 1987. Every year, schools from all over Australia, New Zealand and other neighbouring countries take part. Approximately 41,000 students took part in the 2015 contests.

The Olympiads consist of five separate contests held approximately one month apart between May and September. The overall aim is to encourage students to develop important mathematical problem solving skills in an enjoyable environment.

Although students are competing against other members of their class and teams from other schools, they are primarily competing against themselves. As each of the contests is a month apart, there is plenty of time for practice and improvement.
