On Wednesday 7 March, over 100 students from my school Bentley Park College participated in World Maths Day. It was an excellent experience which saw everyone challenged on all five levels of difficulty. We worked as hard as we could to finish all 50 games in a two hour period. Even though we found some of the levels challenging, we all had a blast! We are already looking forward to competing again in next year’s event.
It has been an extremely enjoyable event to participate in, and it was a great opportunity to compete against the best mathletes from around the world. I am very proud to be an ambassador, and I am now finding a lot of younger students at school now look up to me.
The World Education Games are great because it has encouraged everyone to improve their spelling, maths and science skills.
Keep up the great work everyone!
Congratulations to everyone who completed their 50 games for World Maths Day! We are now in the final day of competition with World Science Day, but the first set of data has become available from World Maths Day. Check out the stats at the mid-way point of World Maths Day for the Middle East:
A fantastic effort in the first 24 hours, with extra countries taking part in World Maths Day that did not yet participate in the first 24 hours of World Spelling Day! Stay tuned for more stats to come.
WOW World Maths Day is finally here and we have been having so much fun at my school, trying very hard to beat people around the world. I have been playing as hard as I can on World Maths Day and so far I am half way through my 50 games. I can’t wait to finish to see where I come in the world and where all my school friends also finish.
Since my last blog, I have had one interview with the North Side newspaper and also appeared in the North Shore Times. It is an exciting time and my family and friends are very supportive of me.
So keep playing World Maths Day today and see where you finish and remember you can play all day long. Don’t forget, you can still play mathletics for the rest of the time you’re at school.
Below are some photos of me and my friends in 5/6H and my teacher Mrs Hartman, at Mowbray Public School, getting involved in World Maths Day.
Hello students of the world!
Over the last week I have been pretty busy! I have been putting posters up around the school! We also have students with numbers of answers in the thousands! On Wednesday I am holding a dress up day for our school to fundraiser for UNICEF and their School in a Box program! I have been practicing pretty hard (3000 questions an evening) and my skills are coming along nicely, and I hope yours are too!
This week I am going to be on TV! That’ll be really exciting! My school has recently been downloading Unity Web Player so we can all play World Science Day!
You don’t have to be a genius to play in the WEG, just play it for fun!
Good luck to everyone and remember it’s all about fun!

I am Adriana, and I am 16 years old. It is a real honor to be representing Guatemala in the World Education Games for the second time! There is a lot going on in my country and at my school. We are all getting ready for the big day! We are planning to have some special guests at our opening ceremony.
On Monday Feb. 27, we were visited from several Guatemalan national newspapers! My schoolmates who have been practicing and I took the time to inform them about how these events are uniting us all. I have been really busy these past days motivating students from 1st through to 9th Grade. We also sent invitations to schools that are not participating yet, so they get to know about this amazing way to unite the world. On 27th Feb a newspaper published this:
And this morning this article appeared on page 6 of their printed version:
I want to wish everyone good luck in all the events!
Try your best to break your old records, or if this is your first time, establish the best ones you can!
Until next time!
Only a few more days left to the World Education Games!
Pakistani Ambassador Dilsher here and I’m glad to say that the regional office and the ambassadors have been promoting the Games very actively. The response has been amazing! Not only are children interested but many schools have signed up their students. Even as I sit right now in the school library, there are classmates beside me who are practicing away.
I’ve been seeing a lot of Pakistani flags in the Hall of Fame and I hope it stays that way during the actual event
Good luck guys! Pakistan Zindabad. Bring home the World Cups.
