The World Education Games are nearing, say hello to Canada’s Ambassadors!
Mathletes, parents and teachers, get ready! The world’s largest education competition – the World Education Games (WEG) is returning in October 2015 and we want you to know all about it! It’s a FREE online education event uniting children from around the world through friendly competition and a love of learning. The best part is that it gives students the chance to show off their awesome math skills in a safe, fun and global setting.
To complement WEG, we have recruited 5 of Canada’s most active Mathletes to be Ambassadors to the World Education Games. They have been selected to represent their province and become education advocates in their school, community and province. A variety of duties and activities will carry them through the entire World Education Games. Read their bios to learn more about them!
British Columbia: Peyton H
Hi, my name is Peyton H, I’m twelve years old and I go to Erickson Elementary School in Creston, British Columbia. The three subjects that I most enjoy are gym, math and science. Some of my favourite things to do outside of school are gymnastics, swimming, spending time with my friends and travelling. I applied to become a Mathletics Ambassador because I thought it would be a great opportunity to meet other people that also use the program and a great chance to learn about leadership skills. It also gives me the chance to help introduce the World Education Games to other kids.
Alberta: Alexandra B
My name is Alexandra B, though most people call me Alex. I am 12 years old and live on an acreage in Ponoka County, AB. I go to a school called College Heights Christian School. I am entering grade 7 and will be under the direction of Mr. Irish. When I was in grade six I was taught by a very enthusiastic teacher, Mr. Gabrys. He was very eager to get all of his students involved in Mathletics. Since math is one of my favorite classes I was very interested in it. I spent lots of time doing Mathletics and eventually I found that I had finished the sixth and seventh grade Mathletics. Overall, this year in grade six, I passed two and a half grades in Mathletics. That is when my love for math really started.
Saskatchewan: Geoffrey M
My name is Geoffrey I am 11 years of age and will be in grade six in the next school year. I attend St. Luke School in Saskatoon, SK. I am the eldest of two siblings. My younger brother and I both enjoy playing soccer and online games including Mathletics. I have always had interest in math, since I was a little boy. I am so honoured and privileged to be a student Ambassadors. I am very excited to be in this role. Not only this is a fun adventure for me, I am also looking forward to meeting kids from around Canada and other countries as well.
