Year 7 and 8 students

 On October 29, we were excited to be able to send eight Year 7 students and eight Year 8 students in four teams to compete in the Annual Mathex Competition held at Barfoot and Thompson Stadium. The fast-paced and challenging competition had our students race to complete 20 problem solving style questions in 30 minutes. Competing against over 40 Auckland schools made it a lively and suspenseful evening for the spectators cheering on our St Heliers School teams. Our students thoroughly enjoyed themselves and are already looking forward to next year’s competitions. We would like to congratulate our Mathex students who gave up their own lunchtimes to practice throughout the year.
