Rotary club maths challenge tests youngsters

Clewer Green were the winning team

Young maths wizards put their knowledge to the test at the annual Mathemagical Competition.

Organised by the Maidenhead Thames Rotary Club it sees teams of year four pupils from 20 schools in the Royal Borough compete for the top prize.

The competition, held on Monday at the Holiday Inn in Manor Lane, saw Clewer Green First School crowned as winners of the challenge after four gruelling rounds of questions.

The team of three each received a medal and a cheque of £200 was given to their school to be spent on educational materials.

Maidenhead Thames Rotary Club president Stephan Stephan said: “It was a brilliant night, the children really enjoyed themselves. It continues to be a popular event with more schools applying than we were able to have come.

“We also did quiz questions for the parents during the written answers sessions which was fun.”

Royal Borough Mayor Eileen Quick also attended and presented the prizes to the top three schools.
