On Friday 3rd March the Maths department kicked off the first Interim House Competition of Spring 2. Students worked in teams of 4 to complete maths challenges in relay race, alternating between the two teams representing each house and collecting the next problem as quickly as possible from the judges the other side of the theatre.
The competition was fierce and the lead changed on numerous occasions… Franklin and Honeyball led in the first quarter, really bringing their A-game in the early questions before Pankhurst stormed back to take a lead…
For a long time, Franklin and Honeyball fought it out for 2nd place… but a late surge from Franklin saw them within one question of equalling Pankhurst before Pankhurst secured the win with a final question in the last 30 seconds.
The competitors and spectators enjoyed the very exciting atmosphere in the final minutes of the competition.
Congratulations to Pankhurst for scooping the 2500 house points for first place.
