‘I love maths and I knew what kind of calculation I had to put into writing’

 

Two pupils of Batinikama Primary School in Labasa brought pride by winning the Fiji Mathematics Association Year Five category.

Avantika Swamy, 11, and Javesh Naidu, 11, said the win was sweet in their debut.

“It was a very tough competition having students from all primary schools of Fiji competing at the same level,” Avantika of Vunivau, Labasa said.

“I love maths and I knew what kind of calculation I had to put into writing.

“We have been preparing for this competition since we entered the school.”

Javesh credited his teachers for the achievement.

“I believe the win was easy due to many months of preparation and this was only possible through the teachers’ assistance,” Javesh of Batinikama, Labasa said.

“I would like to thank all my teachers and parents for their support.”

Batinikama Primary School headteacher Satyawan Virappa said it was a proud achievement for the school.

“The school participated in this competition last year and it was only today they got their prize,” Mr Virappa said.

“We have been waiting for so long to hold the trophies in our hand and show it to the school as a way of encouragement to do better.

“Although our school is located in a remote area, we can equally or do much better than any other schools in Fiji.”
