Each  year    group was  brought on a  Maths  trail around  Ferbane  and  students  used their  spatial awareness and mathematical reasoning  to see  Maths in the World around  them. A whole school Maths   competition was also run around the   theme of   Problem Solving with First Year, Junior School and Senior School taking part. Prizes will  be  given to the    winners in each year group.Gallen  CS  is  to  the  forefront  with its implementation of   JUMP  Maths  . Students and staff have also completed some surveys to assist us with our School Numeracy report.
