Numeracy Week at Desmond College

Desmond College staff and students embraced everything numeracy last week. Students were treated to a feast of number and numeracy for the week.

Monday kicked off with Magician Leon showing our students lots of number and problem solving tricks through the medium of magic. During the week all classes had a focus on numeracy with some fun educational lessons being taught.

Numeracy just didn’t happen in school, students had to record their ‘numeracy moments’ at home during the week and complete a picture collage on their iPad app.

The culmination of the week was a numeracy quiz for first and second year students where they showed their knowledge during the ten round brain buster.
