Maths week in Gallen Community School.
This year’s focus was on ‘Problem-Solving’ while focusing on student engagement as per our strand 3 of SSE.
To include the whole school in problem-solving we had a two-layered competition. One was whole school and the other was a focus on the maths classes. The whole school competition was divided in to Junior, Senior and first year competition. These were displayed in the school outside of the maths room where an entry box was looked after each day by the Kealen Murry, Calvin Keena and Adam Fletcher all in TY.
The winners of €10 call credit are
Junior- Eoin Sheridan
Senior- Adam Fletcher
Within classes the winners of each competition are listed below. The prizes that they received were Rubrik’s cubes which promote problem solving and keep the mind challenged and active. The student engagement in the activities was excellent and I would like to congratulate all involved including Mrs. Scully who won the staff prize.
