Another excellent performance was achieved by our Mathematicians in thisprestigious competition which was held in April. 8700 students Gr 8 – 12, from 170 schools, took part. El Shaddai Christian School was placed 17th overall; this is the sixth year in a row we have been ranked among the top 20 schools in the W. Cape. We are beyond thrilled with this constant achievement.
Peter Stead obtained a gold award for his 9th ranking in the Gr 10 singles category of the competition. Other students who were ranked in the top 25 of their respective divisions were:
Stella Park came 14th in the Gr 12 singles division
Franco Hill came 23rd in the Gr 10 singles division
Michael van Schalkwyk came 23rd in the Gr 9 singles division
Zoë Bohler and Darren Findlay came 16th in the Gr 10 pairs division
In addition, 5 of our students (Peter Stead, Stella Park, Michael van Schalkwyk, Franco Hill and Madeleine Ackermann) were invited to take part in the Selection Round for the top 250 achievers in the competition. This was further narrowed down with Michael van Schalkwyk being ranked in the top 50 learners overall who took part in an Olympiad. This is a very notable!
