Last week, I took my two sons up to the Methanex Maths Competition in New Plymouth to compete against all other schools in Taranaki in a Maths quiz. Auroa School had two teams, Year 7 team and a Year 8 team.
Year 7 Auroa Team - Astin, Jordan, Madaline & Joe
Jorja from Room 3 was there to document the journey.
This is her report.
1) At a Methanex Maths competition you get thirty minutes to answer six really hard questions That evolve around maths.
2) The children competing in this competition are not allowed to communicate with the parents in any way and
same goes to the parents.
3) There are many schools that competed in this competition all around the Taranaki region Auroa is one of the many few.
