Star College prides itself in always achieving excellent results when competing in any Olympiad. This year Jasmica Jagganath and I were selected to be part of KwaZulu-Natal’s A team who were to compete in the Southern African Inter-Provincial Mathematics Olympiad (SAIPMO). Ayesha Abdul Ahmed was chosen for AMESA’s A team and Amitha Doodnath & Chandika Bagwandin were chosen for their B team. They were selected from a large group of top learners from other schools.
The KZN team wrote the Olympiad at the mathematics department in the UKZN Westville campus. We were lucky enough to have had tuition before hand by Prof. Pillay. The AMESA teams wrote their paper at Star College and were tutored by our fantastic maths teachers. We all wrote an individual paper out of 100 marks and a team paper out of a 1000 marks and we only had an hour to do each! Thanks to hard work from all team members, the KZN A team received second place in Southern Africa.
The AMESA Awards Ceremony took place on the 5th of November at Crawford Prep, La Lucia. Ayesha and I were grateful for having been invited to this prestigious event. Ayesha and the rest of the AMESA A team for the SAIPMO received medals for their impressive performance in the Olympiad. I was invited to the event for placing in the top 20 in the Grade 10 division for the AMESA Mathematics Challenge that Star College had written a few months ago. The AMESA Mathematics Challenge consists of two rounds and this year over 8000 learners participated in this competition.
The hall was full to capacity with parents and all those who had done exceedingly well in the AMESA competitions. Members of the Problem Solving Committee, to which our very own Mr Akinci was a part of, awarded medals to all those learners and the chairman handed them to the SAIPMO team. The most exciting part was when AMESA named their best performing high school and it was Star College!!!
