The Newcastle Permanent Primary School Mathematics Competition helps children develop their numeracy and problem-solving skills.

Helping nurture and challenge young minds

With our support, Year 5 and Year 6 students from across regional NSW have the opportunity to test their numeracy and problem-solving skills in one of Australia’s longest running annual mathematics competitions. 

The competition is now in its 38th year and continues to grow each year, attracting almost 19,000 students from 340 schools. The top performing students in each region are invited to our annual awards presentation where they can celebrate their achievements with their family.
