We are all enthusiastic volunteers who are passionate about mathematics learning, especially in primary schools. However, we are also all in fulltime employment in schools, universities or other educational fields, so we are constantly juggling the many demands upon us.

Here are some brief introductions for our main contacts.

President - Vivienne Mallabar

Viv has been an Associate Leader of Learning at Ormiston Junior College since early 2016. Prior to that she worked as a facilitator for Evaluation Associates. Maths has always been an area of interest for her and she loves the passionate educators who volunteer their time and expertise for the benefit of students and teachers as part of the PMA. The yearly seminar allows sharing of ideas from International Keynotes, math facilitators and expert classroom teachers and supports current shifts in the thinking and pedagogy of Math. Come along and see what we offer.
