Toolooa Students Doing us Proud.
 
It is that time of year again when our students are bombarded with numerous mathematics competitions.
 
Last week a team of year 7’s and a team of year 8’s competed against other local schools in Round 1 of the QAMT Maths Challenge at Chanel College.
 
It is with great pleasure that I can announce that, under the great coaching of Mrs. Small and Miss Grehan, our Year 8 team was victorious in this competition with our Year 7 team finishing third overall (beating a number of year 8 teams from other schools).
Our win means Toolooa will now have to send a combined yr7/8 team to Bundaberg in the coming weeks to compete in Round 2 of the competition.
 
Also last week a handful of students sat the Australian Mathematics Competition. The results for this will not be known for some time but I will relay how they went in a future edition of the newsletter.
 
In week 5, ten of our finest year 11 and 12 students will take part in the annual Gladstone District Senior Mathematics Team Tournament.
 
In week 6, ten of our brightest year 9 and 10 students will be taking part in the annual 9/10 Teams Challenge held at Tannum Sands SHS.
 
To round it all off in mid-September a handful of our students will compete in the annual ICAS Mathematics Competition. As with the Australian Maths Competition the results for this are not known straight away but rest assured I will be singing our successes once they are published.
 
What a great time of year!
 
Remember: Maths – It’s the only subject that counts!!!
