Tuam Education Centre is delighted to announce details of an exciting maths table quiz for 5th and 6th class primary school students. The quiz takes place in the Ard Rí House Hotel, Tuam at 9.30 am on Tuesday 10 November. Quiz master will be Mr Cammie Gallagher, former Maths teacher at St. Jarlaths College, Tuam and former Assistant National Co-ordinator for Project Maths.
Director of Tuam Education Centre, Aidan Burke, is delighted to welcome Cammie as organiser of this quiz and Aidan states that “the aim of the management committee of Tuam Education Centre for this quiz is to develop mathematical thinking and reasoning rather than solely working on formulae and computation. It promises to be a really exciting event and is part of Tuam Education Centre’s response to the Department of Education and Skills national strategy to develop children’s numeracy skills.”
There are a few places for schools still available. If primary schools have not already registered and wish to take part in this innovative event please contact Ashling Kelly, Tuam Education Centre at 093 25877. Only one team of four children is allowed from each participating school.
