Tour de Maths 2023

Tour de Maths is an inter-schools Mathematics Problem Solving Competition open to learners from grades 8-9. The competition is hosted every year, at different schools throughout Gauteng.

This year’s competition was held at Woodhill College in Pretoria on the 19th of September 2023. CBC Pretoria managed to get 6 grades 8 and 6 grade 9 learners to be involved with the competition this year. Teams of four pupils are paired with those from other schools.

This year there were about 17 groups with pupils’ interaction with one another, learners got to know each other before they can start with the question paper, just to get the positive energy going.

Learners had an hour to complete the question paper, and teachers were asked to mark the papers immediately. Later, the learners got prizes We are very proud of all our CBC learners who tackled a challenging paper and learnt many new skills.

We would like to thank all the staff that was involved. We would like to congratulate the pair of Karabo Skosana and Ditheto Thaoge’s group for getting 3rd place in the competition and the pair of Jessie Eckard and Ongama Matshini’s group for getting 2nd place, lastly the pair of Thabang Mabaso and Phologo Motswaledi’s group for getting 1st place.
