Primary school students recently celebrated being 100 days smarter! They sang songs, counted to 100, read stories about numbers and proudly wore the number 100 on handmade hats and neckties.

Perhaps the 100th day of school is not an official holiday, but it offers an enriching opportunity to reinforce math skills such as estimating, counting by tens and deciphering between even and odd numbers. At Ann MacArthur Primary School and Bayville Primary School, collaborative projects between art, math, music and classroom teachers provided hands-on activities that brought the 100th day to life.  

Students were recognized for being the 100th child to enter school on the 100th day, for guessing how many items were in a jar and for having 100 days of perfect attendance. 

Everyone is looking forward to learning at least 100 more things before the school year ends!
