Otago Junior Maths Competition

At the recent full-school assembly, Tobias was awarded 1st prize in the Year 9 student category for the New Zealand Junior Mathematics Competition. Given that there are about 6500 students competing from 150 schools, that's impressive!

Warren Palmer, who is an ex-HOD Maths at Kavanagh and who organises the competition, presented the award to Tobias on Wednesday. He said that Tobias got 97%, correctly answering all the questions he attempted and just ran out of time for the last 3%! Tobias achievement was recognised in the Otago Daily Times on Wednesday, too.

Congratulations Tobias on this fine achievement.
