Challenging young minds since 1981

Helping nurture and challenge young minds

Our annual maths competition gives Year 5 and Year 6 students from across regional NSW the opportunity to test their numeracy and problem-solving skills.

One of Australia’s longest running annual mathematics competitions, the Newcastle Permanent Primary School Mathematics Competition is more than 40 years old. It now attracts over 22,000 students from more than 350 schools.

The top performing students from each region are invited to attend a special awards presentation and further compete in the annual Newcastle Permanent Primary School Online Mathematics Team Challenge in May each year.

To find out how your school can take part in the Newcastle Permanent Primary School Mathematics Competition contact the Competition Director, Merv Curran at nppmcomp@tpg.com.au.

Challenging over half a million young minds since 1981.
