Senior Inter-House Maths Competition and SA Maths Olympiad

64 College boys recently took part in Round 1 of the South African Maths Olympiad, with almost 90% of them making it through to the second round. Particular congratulations go to Grant McJannet, who scored 85% in the Grade 8 paper, and Alastair de Kock and Calum Emslie, who scored 85% and 90%, respectively, in the Grade 9 paper. In the Senior paper, Aiden Wood and Zack Swears both scored 85%, while Dylan Heurlin scored a superlative 95%.

The Maths Olympiad results also played a crucial role in the Senior Inter-House Maths Competition. After combining the Relay and Olympiad components the final standings are:
6th place Armstrong; 5th Espin; 4th Graham; 3rd Upper; 2nd Mullins; and 1st place, finishing just 2 points in the lead,
Merriman.

Congratulations to everyone who took part, and to Merriman for taking the title of Senior Inter-House Maths Champions of 2022.
