Sumdog is well embedded in St Joseph’s with children voraciously going on-line at home and school to take part in competitions on the website. At St Joseph’s Sumdog is used for Maths and the children simply love it! One of our P7 pupils is particularly good. On 7 March, 2019 Iona managed to rank as number 4 out of 21837 pupils on Sumdog then on 21 March, 2019 she was the top student in Argyll and Bute!! On that particular week she had been on her residential week at Auchengillan so only had Friday night and Saturday to steam ahead of all the other pupils to take first place!
Iona is not alone in her success with P2 winning class of the week this month too………what a great achievement for all concerned!
