Mathematics Students Shine Again

Mathematics Students Shine Again
 
 
After recent success last term with various team competitions it is with great pleasure that I can also announce some fantastic results by our students who participated in some other competitions prior to the holidays.
 
A number of our Toolooa SHS students participated in both the Australian Mathematics Competition and the ICAS Mathematics Competition. Both of these competitions are international competitions and are well known to test the true mathematics ability of those who compete.
 
In the Australian Mathematics Competition:
 
Students who received a distinction (which places them in the top 10% of results for their age group) were from Year 8: Nicholas Versic, Year 9: Jasmine Elliott and Year 11: Kaitlyn Read
 
One student from year 8 received a high distinction. This places him in the top 1% of all year 8 students who competed in the competition. Congratulations to Kael Brennan – Well Done!
 
In the ICAS Maths Competition our results were just as impressive.
 
Students who received a distinction (which places them in the top 10% of results for their age group) were from Year 7: Abhinav Singh, Year 8: Lachlan Christie and Nicholas Versic, and Year 9: Protim Mir.
 
When compared to the rest of the country our results are even more impressive as can be seen below.
 


 
Well done to all those who participated and hopefully we can get even more students competing next year.
