When it comes to mathematics, things are really adding up at Blackfriars.
The Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC) was held on 3 August. It is a 30-problem competition that demonstrates the importance and relevance of maths in students’ everyday lives.
It has five divisions, with Blackfriars students this year taking part from Year 6 – Middle Primary (Years 3-4), Upper Primary (Years 5-6), Junior (Years 7-8), Intermediate (Years 9-10) and Senior (Years 11-12).
Congratulations to the following students on their outstanding results.
