National Literacy and Numeracy Week 2011

I know I am a bit behind, as Australia's Literacy and Numeracy Week was celebrated from 31 August - 4 September.  On the first day of NLNW, my school launched a week of activities and celebrations with a mulitplication recital competition and a "How many jellybeans in the jar?" competition.  However our BIG event was a noisy investigation of "How many balloons does it take to fill a Mini Cooper S?"  

You may be wondering why we chose a Mini.  It was the Deputy Principal's car.  The Deputy Principal who will never again give me his car keys! 

Oh, and for the record... 169!
