Way to Go, Grades 7 and 8 Mathletes!
All Grade 7 and Grade 8 students recently took part in the University of Waterloo Gauss Mathematics Competition. This is the last contest in a series of year-long challenging Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing (CEMC) mathematics competitions for students from Grades 7 to 12. This year’s results indicated some excellent up-and-coming mathletes.
Congratulations go out to Ezra Choo‘26 who achieved the highest mark in our School on the 2022 Grade 8 Gauss Contest and to Atsushi Ito ‘27 who earned the highest result on the Grade 7 contest in our School. The overall results were excellent, and I congratulate the following students who scored in the top 25% of participants:

It has been a great year of mathematical growth for our students: from our regular Dalhousie University Math Circle events to our Problem of the Week challenges, I commend all students for their interest and participation in all things mathematical!
