Newcastle Permanent Mathematics Competition

We are delighted to announce Lucy King of Year 5 has won the District Award in the Year 5 division of the Newcastle Permanent Mathematics Competition.

The competition is the largest and longest-running competition of its kind in Australia, challenging Year 5 and 6 Primary School students across regional NSW to test their numeracy and problem-solving skills. The statewide Mathematics competition encourages students to challenge their minds with no help from mathematical tools, providing an opportunity to gain invaluable problem-solving skills without relying on tools and technology such as a calculator or ruler.

The competition is now in its 40th year and continues to grow each year, attracting almost 17,500 students from 294 schools. The top-performing students in each region are invited to an annual awards presentation where they can celebrate their achievements with their family.
