Numeracy is a key priority in the District Strategic Plan. The District Numeracy team was proud to host 46 students from 12 schools in SD73 on May 17, 2023, who took part in the Grade 7 Gauss math contest and Team Challenge Day.  The Gauss math contest is a national math contest developed by the Center for Education in Mathematics and Computing at the University of Waterloo. The top scoring students were: 

1st place         Mohamed Nahle from South Sa-Hali Elementary with a score of 136

2nd place        Finn Morgan from Marion Schilling Elementary with a score of 124

3rd place         Tie between Johan Campsall from Lloyd George Elementary and Lucas Lee from McGowan Park Elementary each with scores of 120

After the math contest, student teams from each school participated in a series of numeracy problems at stations run by Norkam Secondary Grade 12 students.  Teams won board games to bring back to their classrooms to play with classmates that emphasize logic and reasoning.

SD73 would like to thank the District Numeracy Team, Monica Bergeron and Cynthia Morrow for organizing the event–all of the participants, volunteers, teachers, and parents involved that made the event a success.
