Challenging young minds since 1981

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 40th year and continues to grow each year, attracting almost 17,500 students from 294 schools. The top performing students in each region are invited to our annual awards presentation where they can celebrate their achievements with their family.

To find out how your school can take part in the Newcastle Permanent Primary School Mathematics Competition contact the Competition Director, Merv Curran at
