We found this great news story on Youtube about student Moosa F from Pakistan. It’s amazing to see the fanfare surrounding his return to Pakistan after he was flown to Sydney for World Education Games Official Awards Ceremony at the Opera House. Moosa came 1st in World Maths Day 2012, in the 11-13 age division.
It’s great to see this recognition for his amazing achievements.
If you haven´t finished your games in Science this is the right time to do it!
March 6 was a reeeeaaaally busy day! My school opened at 6 a.m, and we stayed there until late. In the afternoon, we had a lot of special visitors, one of them was the Guatemalan Minister of Education!

Also, the press has been keeping track of what is going on. A reporter called this morning to gather more information and pictures about the games. He said an article will be published tomorrow in the national newspaper El Periodico. I will make sure I send it to you.
On the other hand, this article written in Spanish was published in today’s paper:

I want to thank 3PLearning for all the promotional materials sent. They really made a difference! Having a bracelet of the World Education Games has become a new trend.
Don’t forget to present your project for the Constructivist Medal!
Talk to you soon!
Ambassador Adriana, Guatemala
My name is Somtochukwu, 2012 World Education Games Ambassador to Nigeria. My job as an ambassador to Nigeria has been very exciting and somehow difficult. It is exciting and fun because with the help of the management and teachers of my school Ladybird Nursery/Primary School, I have been exposed to carry out a National Press Conference – Wednesday, 22nd February 2012 during which many reporters from the print and electronic media attended.
I also had the opportunity to visit and address many students in Lagos State, Nigeria:
- Corona Schools, Gbagada
- Grace Children Schools, Gbagada
- Indian Language School, Ilupeju
- S.T. & T. Regency School, Ikeja
- Christ The King Int’l School, Gbagada
- St. Gloria’s School, Maryland
- Chrisland Schools, Opebi – Ikeja
- Awesome College, Town Planning Way, Ilupeju
- Halifield Schools, Maryland
- Christ The Redeemer’s College, Gbagada
- St. Sophia International, Anthony
My ambassadorial job has somehow been difficult because I could not travel round the whole country in Nigeria. It has also being difficult because more than 95% of the schools in Nigeria do not have computers or an internet connection, hence they will not be able to take part in this wonderful World Education Games.
Only very few schools have computers, and they are not even connected to the internet. To make it possible for one of the public schools “National Primary School”, Gbagada – Lagos, Nigeria, to take part in this 2012 World Education Games, the management of my school, Ladybird Nursery/Primary School, Gbagada, donated 5 High Powered Modern Laptops with Internet Connection to the school.
The Nigerian Press is awash with publications about the 2012 World Education Games:
- The Moment Newspapers – page 40, Wednesday, 29th February 2012
- National Mirror – page 45
- Vanguard Newspapers – page 25
- Champion Newspapers – page 34, Thursday, 1st March 2012
- Punch Newspapers – page 37, Friday, 2nd March 2012.
~~~Electronic Media Houses:
~~~Radio Nigeria 97.7

~~~Date 1: Wednesday, 22 February 2012
~~~Time: 9.30 p.m.
~~~Date 2: Thursday, 23 February 2012
~~~Time: 1.00 p.m.
I hope that those schools that have computers with internet connections that I visited and those schools which might have read or heard about 2012 World education Games in the print and electronic media are taking part in the games as we in Ladybird Nursery/Primary School are doing now.
Friends, I must go now to see how my fellow students are doing in World Education Games in Ladybird Nursery/Primary School.
Bye for now!
The eight Australian Ambassadors were flown to Sydney on monday for a special briefing and presentation at Middle Harbour Public School.
The Ambassadors were privileged to meet Leisel Jones, an Australian swimmer with eight Olympic medals to her name, three of them gold. Leisel presented the Ambassadors with their iPod touches and gave them an inspiring and thought provoking presentation on what it means to train hard and represent your country.
The Ambassadors then had a chance to test their skill against Leisel and pupils at Middle Harbour Public School by playing some World Maths Day games.
