It’s your Thailand WEG Ambassador with an update on how everyone is doing on the games.
Everyone in my class has been doing pretty well. I’ve encouraged my friends to achieve high scores.
Most of my friends and I have played a lot to get certificates. Everything on the WEG has been going very well so I hope you guys will continue to do the games until it ends.
Hey everyone! My name is Aisya Abu Bakar. I am 16 years old and I am a student from Cempaka Schools Damansara Heights.
I am proud to be one of the two Ambassadors representing Malaysia in the World Education Games. I was officially appointed as ambassador last Friday at a special assembly that was held by my school. We were graced with the presence of YB Datuk IR Dr Wee Ka Siong, Deputy Minister of Education of Malaysia as well as Mr Andrew Smith from 3P Learning.
In this special assembly, we were honoured to receive medals and certificates to celebrate the outstanding achievements by the students of Cempaka Schools, which were presented to us by Mr Andrew Smith himself.
Thank you to YB Datuk IR Dr Wee Ka Siong and Mr Andrew Smith for joining us for this utmost joyous occasion. Your presence truly served as motivation for our school community to do well, if not, even better for this year’s games.
We are counting down the last hour before the commencement of the first World Education Games. It kicks off with World Literacy Day, followed by World Maths Day and finishing off with World Science Day.
Students around the world have been gearing up for the next exciting 4 days and I would like to wish everyone the best of luck! May the best team win!
Greetings from Malaysia to all competitors around the world.
My name is Bradley Lewis and I am the Malaysian Ambassador for the 2013 World Education Games. I feel very honoured as I know that I am not only representing my school, Alice Smith Kuala Lumpur but I am also representing my country.
Mathletics is a great website to go onto because you learn while having fun and I think that this is a great way to show that learning is fun.
A big shout out to Samsung, the major sponsor of the World Education Games 2013. Thank you for the wonderful Galaxy Notebook, it is AWESOME!! It was presented to me by Mr. Andrew Smith (photo on the left). I have been practising my Mathletics on it already.
I would like to wish everyone good luck!
This year, Cempaka Schools completely took the world by storm!
All the classes did extremely well, from the youngest students to the oldest. I’d like to congratulate all the students, teachers and classes, and I hope we win some trophies and medals too.
Many of our teams were in the top 10 classes of the world, especially the secondary students, winning a lot of positions.
I hope I shall stay in this school for a long time, for I am VERY proud of my school!
Hello once again everyone!
I’m Jaan, one of the ambassadors for Malaysia.
The World Education Games this year were really fun and exciting due to the number of people who participated. I was delightfully surprised to note that my friends were so engrossed and engaged throughout the Games this year…especially World Maths Day! I also found it nice to know that people in my age group (11-13) were taking such a great interest in The Games.
Before the World Education Games started I gave a short presentation during our school assembly to brief them and ask them to participate in the games. I wanted my friends and schoolmates to have more information; besides the posters we had placed around the school. I also wished them good luck and asked them to try their best.
Mrs Martineau made sure we were given time in class time to participate in the World Education Games. We were given laptops during lessons in class and were allowed to use the Computer Lab during some Maths lessons.
At the end of school on World Maths Day my teacher Mrs Martineau suggested that I coax my friends and mates in Year 8 to finish off their 50 games and do their best. Again I was unprepared for such a last minute on the spot talk and became nervous. Thankfully my friends did their games and received a lot of points for us.
The challenges that I set myself were to make sure I get at least into the top 10 in school for World Maths Day and AT LEAST score 1500 points. Although I didn’t make it into the World Hall of Fame I tried my best and achieved my goals!
Now that all the games are finished I have seen that my classmates and many other people around Malaysia have done amazingly well. I am very proud of my friends and our school for their effort and enthusiastic participation. It has been an enriching experience for me to be an ambassador for my school and country.
By now, many of you will have seen this school racing up the Halls of Fame for all events - a massive feat by the students and teachers at this school to strive to improve their scores during practice has surely paid off as we come into the final hours of competition for World Science Day. With so many students in the running to win medals, we may see Malaysia win one of the heritage crystal trophies! Take a look at a few photos tweeted by Cempaka from the last few days – those shirts are fantastic!
Greetings from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia!
I am Edwin, one of the 3 Malaysian ambassadors for the World Education Games 2012! For the past 3 years, I have represented Cempaka Schools Damansara both as an individual and as part of a team. But this year, the extra duty of an ambassador has been added to my plate. Personally, I have a passion for mathematics and I have been excitedly anticipating World Maths Day 2012. And I am also excited to be participating in World Spelling and Science Day this year as well.
For the past 3 years, I am proud to say Cempakans has blazed the trail for Malaysians, in general, to strive to do well in the World Education Games. Cempaka Schools has done well in preparing me, my team and my school for WEG 2012. On my own personal account, the best feeling so far was in 2009, when our team of underdogs became World #1’s for the first time and hitting the one million point mark! And since then, we’ve all been hard at work, practicing every moment we can and our teachers have sacrificed precious lesson time so we can get the extra round or two.
Out of all my experiences as an ambassador so far, the event most notable to me was my official installation as ambassador. Mr McMahon paid a special visit to our campus and we held a special assembly in accordance with his arrival and my installation. On a side note, I am loving the brand new Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 that was so generously presented to me. My classmate and, now former, ambassador of WEG, Farah Ellyza bid her adieu to her ambassadorship and passed her proverbial torch to me and I plan to carry out my duties to the best of my ability as an individual, team player and ambassador.
My team and I will anxiously be anticipating the challenges that await us this year and we definitely have our eyes on the top spots on the leaderboard, much like previous years. As defending champions of the world, We Are Ready. Are you? See you all on March 6th for the start of World Education Games 2012!
