It All Adds Up For St. Josephs

Monday 29 November 2010

A team of young mathematicians from St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School in Hunslet is celebrating coming top in the annual GSAL Primary Maths Competition.

The Year 6 pupils, Nicky Manu, Karthi Sivaganesh , Hollye Hudson and Ellie Spirrett were up against teams from 31 primary and prep schools in a closely fought final at Alwoodley Gates, Leeds.

The youngsters had initially beaten off stiff competition from 71 West Yorkshire schools in the first round of the challenge, which is organised by GSAL for pupils in their final year at primary school.

Runners-up were Westville House School, Ilkley, with Brodetsky Primary School, Leeds, finishing in third place.

“It was great to see so many talented children taking part and enjoying maths. The standard was extremely high with just 1 point separating the winning teams” said Mr Pat Brotherton, maths teacher at GSAL.
