Europe > Ambassadors
My school really enjoyed the World Education Games. Thanks 3P Learning and Samsung! As Ambassador, I got some of the best opportunities so far in my life.
The World Education Games ended last Friday. Students around the world correctly answered more than 345 million questions last week, and Vogelweh Elementary School students all worked together to give more than 95 thousand correct answers in just one week!
In our school, a third grade boy is a school spelling champion, with 798 words, and a third grade class is on top, with 5253 words spelled correctly.
The math champion of the school is in second grade ( A second grader! ) with 2199 problems solved. He is also the science champion, with 916 points, and his third grade brother came in a close second at 797 points. A fifth grade class led the school with 9,011 math problems solved and 5,383 science points. We’re really looking forward to next year!
Good job to everybody who participated in the World Education Games and all those who made it to the Hall of Fame. Over the past two weeks, our school has been celebrating maths. On World Maths Day, we all had fun with Mathletics, competing online with mathletes across the globe. Another highlight was when we successfully hosted the Primary Maths Fobissea (Federation of British International School Southeast Asia), with 23 schools participating. We have all learned from the challenges we were put up against. I am pleased to have finished 3rd in the Mathletics part of the competition.
We were very honored by a visit from Mr. Paul McMahon of WEG who came to observe the competition. Thank you very much to Samsung for the awesome Galaxy Note. I will certainly put it to good use.
Hope to see you all again next year. Keep up with your maths!
It’s over and what an amazing time we have had participating in the World Education Games!
I hope that you have all enjoyed taking part. Well done to all those who ended up on the Hall of Fame; we had one class (our Year 10s) who did so in World Science Day which we are thrilled about.
Last Friday afternoon, the school’s IT Manager had a surprise for my class. With the World Education Games over he brought in to our class his version of World Maths Day that he took part in many, many, many years ago (!), before computers were even in schools. He showed us a “Mathletics-style” device that used a circuit board and if you got the answer to a question correct a light lit up. We were all amazed and fascinated by this cool device!
We all decided however that we preferred the modern way and are looking forward to next year’s event already.
Just freshly back from my Ambassador’s briefing day in Bristol, all fired up and ready to go! I loved meeting Sandali, Max, Billy and Sharan at 3PLearning Headquarters. Scott Flansburg, The Human Calculator, amazed me with his mind-boggling calculations and showed me that maths could be taken to another level! Thanks to Samsung and 3PLearning for the awesome tablet! Now I can practise even more for all three events with the Apps.
Busy as a hive of bees here at Moorfields Primary! The World Education Games is hard work but a great way to see that subjects some people don’t usually like can be fun. Two major radio stations want to speak to me. Radio Ulster is coming in to watch and talk to pupils participating in the games. Downtown Radio is going to do a live interview with me about my role as an Ambassador and the excitement the WEG has brought for students throughout the UK.
Enjoy taking part in this marvellous event and if you try hard you might see your name on the leader board! Encourage your friends to do the same!
Extremely Excited Ellen.
P.S. The photo is going in our local newspaper!
Tavin, from Vogelweh Elementary School in Germany, lays down the gauntlet to all the schools taking part worldwide – can you and your classmates take on the team at Vogelweh?
Watch out for Tavin and the rest of the Vogelweh students on the Hall of Fame!
Hello my name is Billy from Pennar Community School in Wales. It is a privilege to have been chosen as an Ambassador for the World Education Games.
I am working hard to promote the event with Radio, Newspaper and Television interviews lined up over the next few days. Let’s all get behind the UNICEF “School in a box” fundraising. Every penny makes a difference so let’s come up with loads of crazy ideas to raise as much money as possible. Let’s all do our best, practice hard but most important of all … let’s enjoy ourselves.
Maths is a universal language so let’s unite and compete to do our Countries proud. Good Luck!
As you can see from the below photo it was a cold and foggy day in Bristol..
but this didn’t dull the enthusiasm or excitement one bit! GREAT WORK KIDS!

This features World Education Games, and people featured include Serbian Ambassador: Cameron; Deputy Principal : Neil Howie and some of the students and staff from The British International School in Belgrade. Great work on the warm up everybody!
Hi, I’m Tavin the ambassador from Germany. I am so pumped to get the World Education Games started! In 2010, a Guinness World Record was set. To shatter the 2010 record, we’d need more students in more schools, to could answer even more questions. Do you think we can do it? Here at my school we are off to a great start with more than 43,000 answers in the first week and a half of practice!
The UNICEF School in a Box is a project that gives school supplies to students who don’t have everything we do, not computers, and not even a chalkboard, or pencils or paper, who sometimes have to write with sticks on slabs of mud. UNICEF School in a Box provides all the necessary equipment to set up a classroom for 80 students. Donating to this project gives us a chance to join together not only to solve problems and answer questions, but to unite the world in learning.
I have confidence a high number of students in need of school supplies will receive a UNICEF School in a Box this year.
So join me now in answering questions on this very web site! Go Germany!
Wow! Time passes so quickly!
The Four Nations Maths Challenge seems like it was only yesterday! I’m so pleased that I’ve been chosen as a UK ambassador and to be able to stir things up in my school and country.
I know you have been working really hard to fundraise and practise for this hair-raising event. Just think about all those smiles on the faces of the children UNICEF will educate with our help! : )
Looking forward to the challenge of the World Education Games!
From a very excited Ellen.
