Erin Anderson, director of Global Programmes, International Maths Olympiad Challenge (IMOC), who lauded the performance of Greensprings School students, said he was pleased with the constant support the school showed its students.
“We recently conducted an Olympiad for selected schools, and we had more than 50,000 entries globally. The competition was intense, but the students of Greensprings School performed very well, and they have been awarded the title of International Maths Olympiad Elitist,” Anderson said.
She said the Maths Olympiad Challenge provides engaging math online tests and preparatory content to primary and middle school students throughout the world.
According to Anderson, it is only through the guidance of the school that these students could have achieved such accomplishments.
Barney Wilson, deputy director of Education, Greensprings School says that students’ success always brings joy to the school and will continue to spur others to know they can keep the flag flying high as they enter more competitions locally, nationally and globally.
Wilson further said that the Elitist title accorded to the students is a befitting great birthday gift for Lai Koiki, executive director of Greensprings School.
