With over 50 parents and guardians accompanying children and staff, the recently held “Numeracy Night” at the St. Paul’s Primary School proved to be equally as entertaining as it was educational for all those attending.

Featuring a variety of challenging, yet fun mathematical activities, the Global Directories/Barbados Yellow Pages sponsored “Numeracy Night” brought students and their parents together in teams to solve numerous mathematical puzzles developed by the teachers at the school, with an aim to improving all parties’ understanding of mathematics and its everyday application.
“With tremendous support and assistance from Barbados Yellow Pages and other sponsors, the staff worked feverishly to set up the various activity stations, such as Math-O-Logical, Running Math, Domi-Matics, Math-A-Make-It, Mem-O-Matic and a number of other activities which tested the participants’ mathematical skills and also provided new learning tools. At the end of it all the teachers, pupils and students returned home armed with novel ways of demystifying mathematics and recognizing fascinating methods of mastering numbers.”

At the start of the night each participant was issued with $20 in St. Paul’s currency which bought them chances at the various stations. Additional money could be attained by persons correctly answering a mathematical problem, while time restrictions were imposed on each activity, allowing all attendants to visit each of the stations set out.

“Education must not only be structured, it should also be fun, particularly when dealing with young children who tend to grasp concepts better when the delivery is much more interesting. We therefore fully support any attempts by St. Paul’s Primary to emphasize this approach and look forward to assisting with similar events in the future.”
