Liverpool Counts Quality Mark Celebration Event

On 22nd June 2018 schools attended a celebration event at the Museum of Liverpool to receive their Liverpool Counts Quality Mark.

The LCQM is an exciting project which aims to promote positive attitudes towards maths and show pupils that numeracy skills are used consistently in everyday life. One of the highlights of the event was when 4 pupils from St Hilda’s CE High School demonstrated how they could use algorithms to solve a Rubiks Cube.  They managed to complete 4 cubes in the time that it took to play the music to Mission Impossible.

Schools taking part were invited to take part in a competition element based upon the development of the maths promotion part of their website.  As part of the celebration the winners of the website competition was announced and the three winning schools received maths-based board games.

There are currently over 70 schools that have either achieved the quality mark.  The schools awarded the Liverpool Counts Quality Mark at the celebration event on 22nd June were:
