2011 China Mathematics Olympiad

3 of our Year 5 students represented Singapore in the 26th China Mathematical Olympiad (CMO) in Changchun from Jan 12th to 18th.

CMO has been the platform where the China national training team is selected for the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO). Thus all provinces across the country send their best hopes to this competition.   This year, after the competition, the top 40 China students were selected into the team.

We are proud to announce that Lee You Jun has done extremely well, being placed at the 41st position, clinching a silver medal. Our other representatives, Ding Yue and Ryan Kor Chong Luck were each awarded a bronze medal.

We would like to thank the team of teachers for training and preparing the students and Ms Xu Luxi for leading the team in Changchun.
