Covid 19 could not hinder the brightest mathematical minds of our current year 9 & 10 cohort, who participated in the Intermediate Maths Challenge. Several candidates not only achieved a Gold Certificate, awarded to only the top 6% of entrants, but were also invited to compete in follow-on rounds on 19 March.
Only 1500 of the highest performers are invited to take part in either the Cayley, Hamilton or Maclaurin Olympiad and around 8000 to take part in either the Grey or Pink Kangaroo (depending on their school years). Progressing to the next round is an achievement in any year but especially now and we wait eagerly for news on their performance.
The qualifying girls were year 9s Ceyda, Aratrika, Raffaella, Zahra, and Giulia for Grey Kangaroo; and Roslyn for the Cayley Olympiad. From year 10, Amelia, Anaira, Rujula qualified for 'Pink Kangaroo', with Naoko qualifying for the Hamilton Olympiad.
