Our brilliant young mathematicians won 17 awards in a national competition.

The Year 7 and 8 students won one Gold, seven Silver and nine Bronze awards in the United Kingdom Mathematics Trust’s Junior Maths Challenge which tests logical and critical thinking skills.

The one hour test is sat under examination conditions.

CBA Assistant Director of Mathematics Maxwell Sam said: “We had a very successful Junior Maths Challenge.

“There is a very competitive culture here. The students want to be a part of these contests and want to do well.

“Every year our results get better and this is down to the strong team of staff members we have in this faculty and our Director of Subject Heather Thompson.”

Our top Year 8 student was Denisa Stanciu who earned Gold with a score of 83.

Our top Year 7 student was Sullivan Rymarz who won Silver with a score of 70.
