Students who wrote the Canadian Senior Math Contest from the University of Waterloo, and the Canadian Open Math Challenge from Sun Life Financial in partnership with University of Toronto, and who scored in the top 25% of all participants were presented with a certificate of distinction.
Mr. Rambarran, Principal,Mr. Putt, Head of Senior School, Ms. Markuc, Head of Mathematics, and Mr. Luymes, Math Teacher, were on hand to congratulate the top achieving students.
