The classes received the following world rankings; grade 3 ranked 3rd in Asia, grade 4 ranked 10th Asia and grade 5 ranked 7th in Asia. Two individual students from primary received; 8th (G4- Honoka) and 16th (G3- Alvin) rankings in all of Asia. The whole school, including all staff was proud of primary’s great achievement in the competition.
Grade 4- Honoka
Math is very fun! This is why I enjoyed the math competition so much. The competition was made up of three different levels easy, medium and hard. Of course I liked the easy level! Some of the medium level and all of the hard level were very difficult, as it often asked questions that I didn’t learn in school.
All my friends and teachers told me that I did very well in the math competition. This made me very happy! I plan to do better next year and I want to get a gold medal in the math competition. I need to study math more if I want to get the gold medal. Do you like math?
