Marcus had a standing ovation from his classmates just before the end of school today. The Vice Principal, Mrs Wright had come to the class with the news that Marcus gained a credit in the Maths Competition. Marcus (who is in Grade 1) completed the Grade 3 level test, in place of a Grade 3 child who pulled out or was sick on the day. His teacher Mrs Corney thought he would find it interesting and enjoyable, but I don't think she was expecting to hear any more about it.
Not only did he do well in his answers, but Mrs Wright said his whole approach was very mature and she was very impressed with how comfortable Marcus seemed, sitting in the staff room with kids of all ages, just tackling maths problems.
We are so proud of him!
