STUDENTS from Ballarat Secondary College East Campus turned into teachers this week as part of a special numeracy program.
The program involved pupils from Caledonian Primary School participating in a variety of numeracy activities run by East Campus year 9 students.
With about 130 primary school children taking part, the pressure was on the year 9 students to deliver and they did, with each of the youngsters full of smiles.
The PRISEC numeracy program is only the second of its kind, with the BSC Wendouree campus hosting one earlier in the year.
“The program is about an opportunity to do maths in a non-traditional way,” College numeracy leader Dan Devaney said. “It’s fun, it’s exciting.”
Grade 6 pupil Ashley Chamberlain said she thrived on the numeracy day.
“I like it because I like maths, but I wish we didn’t have as many breaks,” Ashley said.
The PRISEC numeracy program is one initiative at the Ballarat Secondary College which Mr Devaney hoped would continue for years to come.
