Want to know more about Games Days? We will be holding a Teachers Games Day in Term 3, 2024! Open to all primary and secondary school teachers, a fast-paced day with keynote speaker James Russo. You will leave well-equipped with ideas and resources to run your own event for your school or nextwork. Registrations open soon! Bring a team of four or we will place you in a team with teachers who teach at a similar level.

Friday 23rd August - Elwood Primary School

TBC - Heathmont College


A Maths Games Day is an opportunity for students to:

  • develop their mathematical talents and thinking skills in a setting where maths is regarded as fun and worthwhile
  • work with like-minded students from a diverse range of schools
  • participate in mathematical activities without the usual class room pressures
  • win prizes and rewards
  • get excited about maths!

Maths Games Days are a very effective vehicle for getting young people – particularly in the middle years of schooling – enthused about maths. Problem solving and mathematical games address the Victorian Curriculum.

Teams of 4 students (maximum 2 teams per school) compete in areas of creativity, efficenciey and contribution to group work. The participants are drawn from those who have a keen interest in mathematics and who can operate as a team. Lateral thinking wins the day.

Maths Games Days are organised and run by host schools and supported by the MAV.

Cost per team:

MAV Members $60 

Non Members $75

Teams who cancel their booking before the closing date for registrations will receive a refund less a $35 administration fee. All cancellations MUST be in writing. Cancellations after the close of registrations are not eligible for a refund. Please email the MAV to if you wish to cancel, not the host school.
