STANGER Manor Primary School scooped the lion’s share of awards at the Lower Tugela Maths Association (LTMA) awards presentation held at the KwaDukuza Town Hall on Wednesday.

LTMA hosted an inter-school Math-a-Move and Maths Top 20 Competition (for pupils from grades four to seven) during the second term of this year at the Stanger Heights Primary School.
The top three achievers in each of the games and their parents were invited to the awards ceremony.

Last term LTMA hosted an inter-school problem solving relay/challenge for pupils from grades three to seven. Approximately 2 000 pupils participated in the first round. Pupils who excelled in round one automatically advanced to the second round of the competition. The second round took place at five local schools and strict invigilation was conducted by officials of LTMA. The names of the top 20 achievers in each grade were revealed at Wednesday’s awards ceremony.
There was huge jubilation among pupils and parents after the results were announced.

Isaac Abraham, president of LTMA, was full of praise for all pupils, especially the Grade 3 pupils who showed tremendous creative thinking skills in solving the problems.
All three mathematics subject advisors from the iLembe District of Education, Nombuso Makhaza, Khona Shandu and Phikelela Gumede who were present at the awards ceremony were beaming with pride to witness the outstanding effort of the pupils and the work done by members of LTMA in promoting mathematics at primary schools.

Makhaza said: “The president, Isaac Abraham and his dedicated band of officials must be applauded for their outstanding effort. I am really thrilled to see pupils from different schools excelling in the competition and I will definitely not miss next year’s events”.
