St Mary's maths challenge pupils with their certificates


Axminster St Mary’s RC Primary School children gain certificates after completing challenge

Pupils at St Mary’s Catholic Primary School in Axminster have been taking part in the primary maths challenge, a national competition which is designed to make youngsters think ‘outside the box’.
