The Thando Ndlovu Maths Challenge Trophy

During the Summer of 2021, we received the truly devastating news that Thando had gone missing. The tragic outcome was that he had drowned whilst swimming with friends in the River Trent near Swarkestone. We will miss Thando hugely, but our heart and prayers go out to his extended circle of family and friends. It’s been said before, but Thando was a big shining star, who always put others before himself. We were privileged and honoured to have known him and to be involved with his funeral. We’re planning to create a memorial to him in the form of an annual Maths Challenge, the winner of which will be awarded the Thando Ndlovu Trophy for the year.

The challenge will be based on our iKip platform and will be age-appropriate, to ensure that everyone has the same chance of winning. It will take place over 4 weeks each January and will capture progress made with Times Tables. Even if students are only doing English at Kip, they will still have the opportunity to enter. Your child’s teacher will record the scores and then apply their knowledge of the student to arrive at a final score. There will be a prize for the “best” progress with each teacher and the overall winner will receive the Thando Ndlovu Maths challenge trophy to keep. We’re planning to run the competition each year in January.

You can see the overall winners (who get to keep the trophies) of the January 2022 competition here. Runner up prizes were awarded for the competition. Congratulations to everyone who took part; once again, choosing the winners was a real challenge in itself.

Secondary Winner:

We were really pleased that all students embraced the challenge, eagerly participating and striving to improve their personal scores. Many were supportive of their peers and really encouraging as others achieved new highs. The real positive for us was the improvement we witnessed in the students’ maths. For many, their proportional reasoning and mental maths improved significantly. We saw increased understanding, even of problem-solving as they were able to make associations with numbers due to a much better understanding of ratio and proportion. Many students being able to mentally multiply and divide quantities and better understand worded problems. It even helped them mathematically model scenarios. We could have easily underestimated the value of the multiplication tables. This is a lesson we will carry forward. It is so fitting and lovely that Thando continues to enrich the lives of Kip students and ourselves.
