TWO Laddsworth pupils were awarded trophies at the Kwa-Zulu-Natal Regional Abagility Maths Club Championship held on Saturday August 19 in Kloof, where 240 pupils participated across various levels.

Abagility teaches addition, subtraction, multiplication and division based on Japanese abacus mathematics techniques. Two papers were written, one using an abacus and a second paper using “anzan”, which is mental arithmetic.

Tessa Moreno, a Grade 2 pupil, was awarded the Champion of Champions trophy for attaining the highest mark in her level.

Jodi Moreno, Grade 4, was awarded the Champion of Champions trophy for her module. This is the fourth consecutive year that Jodi has received this award.

Jodi furthered her achievements by being placed second overall in the millions and billions Dictation Challenge, and third overall in the Advanced Anzan Dictation Challenge.

Both girls have also been chosen to represent KZN in the nationals championship to be held in Gauteng in October. - Supplied.
