The first semi-final of the Mathletics competition took place today, which pitted Darwin against Garrick. Each team consisted of one house member from each of Year 7, 8, 9 and 10. After an initial early surge from team Darwin, team Garrick clawed their way back into the competition and emerged as victors, by 10 points to 7. Congratulations to Will Messenger, Sophie Rogers, Dylan Jones and Cheyanne Detheridge, we’ll see you in the final! Watch this space for the results of the second semi-final between Seward and Johnson next week!

Daniel Buxton, Maths teacher (and Mathletics host), said: “We are extremely proud of all participants, especially with how well both teams co-operated. The match-up could have gone either way!”
