The Numeracy week kick started on this day and students and teachers had to apply maths in most things they did throughout the week. Teachers includes included cross curricular links in their lessons to promote mathematical knowledge to give the week importance.
During am registration, students were playing games related to mathematics such as cards, monopoly, scrabble, etc, from 7:30 am to 8 am in their form rooms assisted by their form tutors.
