The competition is entered by students from top Mathematics classes from across the country and is a chance for the mathematically able to pit their skills against other excellent mathematicians in Years 7 and 8. In Year 7 fourteen students achieved a Bronze award, 7 achieved Silver and 5 achieved Gold; in Year 8 eleven achieved Bronze, 7 achieved Silver and 3 achieved Gold.

Special commendation must go to Maddi Freyne, Ben McGuire, Oliver Honeybone, Gregory Eastman, Milan Leibing and Alfie Blowman for getting through to the next round of the competition.

Students will be receiving their certificates in the coming weeks and the second round of the competition is held on Tuesday 12th June.
