Westerford High learners shine in UCT Maths Competition
On Thursday the 25th of April, 75 Westerfordians from Grade 8 to Grade 12 took part in the UCT Maths Competition, one of the highlights of the Mathematical calendar.
Then, on Friday the 7th of June, 4 of Westerford’s top mathematicians attended the prize-giving for the competition, all achieving Gold Awards.
Alex Sinclair-Smith (9) placed in the top 10 for the Individual category for Grade 9, while Lucas Rosenfield (12) and Emmanuel Abiodun (12) placed 3rd in the Pairs category for Grade 12. Tengjun Liu (8) placed 1st overall in the Individual category for Grade 8: a truly outstanding achievement.
Westerford, one of only 3 schools to place first overall in the competition, placed 6th this year with Rondebosch Boys placing first.
Congratulations to all those who took part and particularly to Tengjun, Alex, Lucas and Emmanuel; their results are a fine testament to Westerford’s excellent Mathematics Department.
