Year 7 recently took part in the first Inquisitive Minds program to be run at the college. This program involves the solving of mathematical problems in a fun, competitive environment that had the girls winning points and prizes and, without them realising it, learning some very useful problem solving strategies.
The student engagement was wonderful and all the girls seemed to have a good time regardless of ability level.
The presenters were fun and highly engaging with the girls and seemed to have infinite patience and an ability to predict problems and difficulties long before they appeared.
My thanks to all the presenters but also to the students who entered into the event with a positive attitude and a sense of fun.
