Earlier in the year, a number of our students sat the Australian Mathematics Competition for 2019. This national competition provides an opportunity for our students to compare how they are going in Mathematics compared to the rest of the country.
Every year our students achieve strong results in this competition. This year we achieved some excellent results, with an increase in the total number of certificates awarded at all 3 levels of achievement:
5 Certificates of Distinction
41 Certificates of Credits
109 Certificates of Proficiency
This is a fantastic result and shows our students’ commitment and growth in their Mathematics. These certificates will be awarded at an upcoming assembly.
The following students achieved a Certificate of Distinction, which indicates that they are in the top 20% of the country for their academic year:
Congratulations should also go to Cooper Morrisey, Samuel Hull and Bradley Wade for being jointly awarded “Best Result in School”. This indicates they were our highest performing students at the College and had the same standardised score when compared across year groups.
The following students achieved a Certificate of Credit, which indicates they are in the top 55% of the country for their academic year.
Thank you to Mr Chris Meek for his promotion, organisation and administration of this important competition. We look forward to further growth in our success in future years.
