MTS Trivia Night
Which rugby league team won an astonishing 11 straight premierships? Questions like this and others are sure to feature at our annual MTS Trivia Night. Last year the night was a raging success, combining some serious trivia with many laughs. This is a great opportunity to get to know others in the community and continue to build the spirit which MTS already has in spades.
This year the trivia night will take place on Saturday June 1st. The theme is “tropical nights”, which will surely suit Mr Hughes as he possesses at least 100 Hawaiian shirts! Registrations will open from the beginning of next term and more information will follow.
Incidentally the answer to the before mentioned question is the Dragons!
At this week’s assembly a special presentation was made to James Lonergan, from 5 Pearl, who assisted one of our students when struck by a car. James not only contacted the child’s mother, but also walked them home. James received a
well-deserved bravery award and a gourmet lunch to recognise his compassion. This is once again an example to all in our community of what it means to “do small things with great love”.
Congratulations to the “King of the Carnivals” Mr Roweth on co-ordinating another outstanding day on Friday. Our athletics carnival showcased not only some of our talent, but also emphasised the importance of everyone doing their best and supporting each other throughout the day.
This day would not be possible without the efforts of our staff and parent community, many who were at the oval early to prepare for the day and stayed after to ensure that all of the equipment was returned to school. A reminder that our cross country carnival will be held this Friday.
This week we have three challenges for different abilities.
I was counting by the same number each time. However, the number of ones was the same every second number. What was I counting by? [Develop confidence with number sequences to and from 100 by ones from any starting point. Skip count by twos, fives and tens starting from zero.]
I was asked to measure my bed. I got 37 when I measured it accurately. My mum didn't believe me and measured it accurately and got 370. My dad didn't believe any of us and measured accurately and got 3700. How did we get three different measurements? [Use scaled instruments to measure and comare lengths, masses, capacities and temperatures.]
When I put 4 + 4 x 3 into a calculator, the answer was 24. When I worked it out by hand it was 16. How is this possible? [Explore the use of brackets and order of operations to write number sentences.]
