I was very fortunate to be selected to represent my country. I would like to thank my friends and family for supporting me for the South African Maths Challenge as without them I would not be where I am today.
As you know my name is Dean, I live in Gauteng and I go to Fourways High for my schooling. I have 2 brothers, 1 is 13 and the other is 2.
In the Games I plan to do as well as possible. My aim is to get a gold medal. But my overall goal is to get 1 of the 3 trophies for my country. With the help of my teacher, friends, fellow Ambassadors and of course my school, I know that this dream is possible.
Being the first in my school to part take in an event of this measure is very honouring. I reccomend that others should also take part in this prestigious event. I want my country to do well in this because it will show the rest of the world that our country can not only challenge others but even succeed in this event.
Good luck to all the participants and may the best win.
This is Dean signing out.
This Ambassador Kanon of Japan!
So, seems like the World Maths Day has already started! Wow, time flies by so fast! This is my first time participating, so I am excited but also very nervous!
Good luck to all of you! And also, wish me luck~ XD
Go, go Japan!!
Yestarday I had a great day in Auckland meeting the Mathletics staff and the other New Zealand Ambassadors. While we where there we got to go to the ASB building, up the sky tower and to UNICEF and learn about School-in-a-Box. Its great to see schools supporting School-in-a-Box by bringing along gold coins tomorrow.
Good job to everyone who has completed World Spelling Day today. Great to see some New Zealand flags in the top 100.
I’m really looking foward to representing not only Oxford Area School, but all of New Zealand this year. Best of luck to all of the students competing in the World Education Games, let’s try win the trophy. Come on New Zealand!
My name is Mason and I am a New Zealand Ambassador for the World Education Games for 2012!
Wow what a week it is shaping up to be. Monday was the NZ Ambassadors Day and Yvonne and Jamie from Mathletics took the NZ ambassadors for an amazing day on the town.
We meet with the sponsors of the NZ maths challenge ASB and Kerry put on a fantastic morning tea. Then off to the Skytower for more food and lunch at the Revolving restaurant. Later at UNICEF the other ambassadors and I learnt all about School-in-a-Box from Jacqui and saw what a difference they can really make.
Now the games have begun I am sure NZ is going to do really well this year and will bring home heaps of medals – go NZ !!!!!!
Also to my Mathletics friends around the world: Good luck!!! Go Moosa F from Pakistan, we have heaps of battles in the warm up games.
Thanks also to Samsung, I have been play WEG on my Brand New Galaxy Tab 10.1
Hi I’m Shweta from Marian College, I’m a World Education Games Ambassador for New Zealand and representing my old school, St Mary’s Catholic School in Christchurch for 2012. I’m 13 years old and in year 9. I really enjoy being a participant of the World Education Games and becoming an Ambassador is a great opportunity for me. I have learned heaps from the program and I had fun playing with different people around the world. I love doing maths, science, and spelling and I especially love going to school.
It’s not too long till the games start, just a few more hours and the students will be playing rapidly. I hope New Zealand tries their very best and brings home the trophy. I really enjoyed it today in Auckland, I had a lot of fun meeting with the other students and the UNICEF people. It was a fun and tiring day and now all we are waiting for is for the games to start. GO NEW ZEALAND!!!
Hi I am ShiQin, Ambassador of Singapore. I love math. I am trying to help my friends to learn more about math.
In our class we are doing a game called ‘guest teacher’, that is if some classmates have something interesting to say about math/spelling/science they can teach us that in the game.
Every week we will do some interesting exercises for math and spelling. All of the students like to do the exercises and practice their learning skills. There is a lot of improvement made in the math and spelling lessons. One of my classmates even got the highest score in Singapore!
I hope all Ambassadors can help their friends to learn more about these subjects!
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!
My name is Reece and I am 9 years old.
I am one of the Maths Ambassadors from Ireland.
On Thursday 2nd February, the 3rd class parents came in for a tutorial of Mathletics. It was great fun!
Taylor, Dionne, Ebony and I demonstrated different things on Mathletics. I showed the parents Mathletics Live. Taylor showed data, Dionne showed shapes and space and Ebony showed fractions. I also took some photographs. Then the children were invited down to use Mathletics with their parents.
It was a great success! I hope we can do it again.
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.
Hi fellow mathematicians!
I am Ambassador Ali, representing the UAE.
Since the big day (WMD) is about ten days away I suggest you start training if you haven’t already.
I’m going to be representing my school the AIS(Australian International School) and we will be glued to our seats during the events, so if you and your school think your up for the challenge you gotta work hard because we’re tough and we have our eyes on the trophies this year.
So start training and as my colleague and fellow Ambassador Mai said, stretch those fingers! My school and I are coming for the trophies!
