Toolooa SHS - Mathematics Competitions Success.
 
 
Year 8:
 
Earlier this week Toolooa SHS was represented by two very good teams in the annual QAMT Year 8 Mathematics Competition held at Gladstone SHS. Of the ten teams that competed on the night I’m pleased to say that our two Toolooa SHS teams finished first and second blowing the competition away. Our winning team now goes onto the next stage of competition competing against teams from other regions in Bundaberg. Congratulations to our teams: Toolooa 2 who finished second: Nic Versic, Jake Holmes and Anna Meikle and especially our winning team Toolooa 1 consisting of Xavier Townsend, Lachlan Christie and Merin Ward.
 
Year 9/10:
 
Last week Toolooa SHS was represented by two teams at the annual Gladstone & Region yr9/10 Mathematics Tournament held at Tannum Sands SHS. Our year 10 team performed excellently tying for 4 place. Our year 9 team however was victorious on the day having tied with a Tannum Sands SHS team after the regular rounds and then being forced into a spine tingling tie breaker from which they emerged the winners. Congratulations to our winning team of Lootphee Dzulkamal, Botond Hajos, Jasmine Elliott, Tommy Flint and Protim Mir.
 
Year 11/12:
 
Two weeks ago we also had two teams competing in the annual Gladstone District Senior Mathematics Teams Tournament held here at Toolooa SHS. Whilst both teams were unsuccessful, they did in fact perform very well on the day with our year 11 team (5th overall) outperforming our year 12’s. Thank you to both teams for your participation.
