“On Tuesday 51 Year 8 and 9 students took part in the Mayors Fund for London Count on Us Mathematics Challenge, full of puzzles and games. They worked in groups of 5-6 and worked together to try and solve as many problems as possible. We all really enjoyed the morning” - Lucas Welshman, 9AM.
Philomena Murray, 8PM said “I really enjoyed the morning. Everyone was encouraging and friendly. I especially enjoyed the 24 game and the game of Hex. It was competitive and exciting, and it made me think on my feet. It was challenging, but really fun”.
All 51 students worked incredibly hard to solve each problem, working well as a team and supporting each other. 16 Year 10 students helped to referee each game, and encouraged and supported the years 8 and 9. All students were a real credit to themselves and the school.
We are pleased to announce that FJ Juenda, Philomena Murray, Lucas Welshman, Adam Ward and James Kersey have been selected to represent Hampton High in the regional heats. We wish them the best of luck.
