RIVERTON Primary School
maths students have taken out
the top title for a National maths
Year 7 group, appropriately
named “Divide and Conquer” by
students, Kate Molineux, Henry
McCabe, James Hocking and
Luke Hartwell, took on the Natu-
rally Mathematical Challenge and
were named the overall winners.
Through various problem
solving over four weeks they
were placed in the top three for
both challenges and were voted
by other schools and teams as the
Maths teacher, Alana Dunn,
said the experience was special.
“The challenges enabled stu-
dents to become more confident
with their own mathematical
thinking and problem solving
skills, but equally important, ex-
cited about maths,” she said
“After I saw their fantastic
work I already felt as though they
were winners, I was so proud.
“It was great to see their hard
work recognised by being selected
in the top three on two occasions
and then finally having their work
as the best in the category.
“I truly believe that their work
was inspiring for other students at
other participating schools who
went from doing word documents
in the first challenge to much
more creative work in the second.
“There is no greater feeling
than seeing your students enjoy-
ing and being successful with
their learning.” The Divide and
Conquer group expressed their
gratitude for the competition.
“The National Mathematical
Challenge was great because I
was able to work with a differ-
ent group of people I normally
wouldn’t work with on something
I enjoy,” Kate said.
“I enjoyed the Naturally
Mathematical Challenge because
it was rewarding after taking a
lot of hard work to complete,”
Their work is available to be
viewed on the Natural Maths
THE nervous wait for local Year 12
students will be over shortly, as their
South Australian Certificate of Education

To access their results on-line via the
SACE Board website at www.sace.sa.edu.
au, students need their SACE Student
Registration Number and Personal Iden-
tification Number (PIN).
However, if a student does not know their
PIN, they can request it be reset through
the SACE website, but this should be done
prior to Thursday.
Students, if eligible, will also receive a
second envelope containing a Tertiary En-
trance Statement from the South Australian
Tertiary Admissions Centre (SATAC) with
information about their TAFE SA Selection
Score and Australian Tertiary Admission
If students don’t attain their desired
SACE results, it’s not the end of the world,
as there are other options available
“It is important to note that SACE re-
sults do not define the student. For those
who did not achieve their personal goals,
there are always other options available,”
SACE Board chief executive, Dr Neil
ASACE results enquiry line will operate
8.30am-5pm from Thursday, December 18
to Wednesday, December 24, and again

A free call number for country students
is available on 1800 652 230.
