Greetings to all Walford Mathematicians – that’s all of you in the Walford community!

I am so proud of our students and teachers for their passion, creativity and engaging approach to teaching, learning, activities, enrichment, care and support, which we do so well in Mathematics here at Walford. A fantastic example of this is having our very own Ms Joanne Maratos recognised in the Sunday Mail feature Australia’s Best Teachers – Congratulations Ms Maratos!

Thank-you to everyone who voted for the “Cake-ulator” entry in the Walford picnic cake competition. The standard of entries was incredibly high!

Warmest thanks to Christina Economos who purchased the Cake-ulator in the silent auction and then generously donated it back for the Walford staff to enjoy.

The following students are to be commended for their exceptional achievement in the Mathematical Association of South Australia Hamann School Mathematics Competition. This is a competition open to all
students in South Australia and is widely regarded as one of the most challenging competitions of the year. The following students will be presented with their awards at a special ceremony on 9th May. Congratulations!
