On Wednesday 30 May, 30 of our students participated in the annual Maths Team Challenge, organised by Ferny Grove State High School.
The talent of our students was astounding with five of our six teams placing in the Top 3 and our sixth team scoring a close fourth.
Congratulations to the following students:
Year 11/12 Teams
Team 1 (Year 12 – William Chen, Anditya Hampapur & San Jack Low; Year 11 – William Du & E-Yong Lee) won the competition with a score of 179/200, five points ahead of the second placed team.
Team 3 (Year 12 – James Dann, Cindy Ding & Christina Tang-Fujiwara; Year 11 – Tim Li & Saul Rathbone-Boschis) came third with a score of 154/200.

Year 7/8 Teams

They finished the second part of the competition in 30 minutes, with 20 minutes to spare. It is very rare that any teams finishes the second part (the relay) with a perfect score and the organisers do not ever remember a team finishing that quickly.
Team 2 (Year 8 – Jessica Bailey, Chanel Li & Amrita Sarkar; Year 7 – Vy Khanh Dinh & Roger Yu) came third with a score of 234/250, 5 points behind second place.
Overall, excellent results! Congratulations to all the students for their fine work.
