Australian Mathematics Competition Results

In August the College had approximately 270 students sit the Australian Mathematics Competition. Congratulations to our nine High Distinction winners: Jack Worthington (Yr7), Luke Di Donna (Yr7), Isabelle Pang (Yr8), Jacob Arto (Yr8), Joseph Kavenagh (Yr9), Luke Miniello (Yr10), Daniel Litjens (Yr11), Kale Watts (Yr12) and Clare Martis (Yr12) scoring in the top 2% of the State.
Congratulations to Luke Miniello who was the College’s top performing student. Luke represented the College at the recent Australian Mathematics Trust event, which recognised all award winners. Luke’s score placed him well within the top 1% of the State – well done!
Also congratulations to Jack Worthington for winning the Prudence Award. This is awarded to the students in each school that answers the most questions correct in a row without making an error. Jack answered the first 21 questions correct – well done!
We received 50 Distinctions; these are awarded to students in the top 15% of the State, so another excellent effort. The recipients in order of performance for each year level are:
