Rosa Science and Technology High School, and Andres Rico Gonzales of Colegio de San Juan de Letran dominated the 2015 Australian Mathematics Competition. Gonzales got a perfect score to win the Peter O’Halloran Certificate of Excellence.
A Grade 8 student from Colegio de San Juan de Letran emerged as one of only 42 students in the world among a total of 300,000 participants to get a perfect score in the recently concluded 2015 Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC), a superb feat that coincides with the Mathematics Trainers’ Guild (MTG) of the Philippines’ celebration of its 20th anniversary.
Andres Rico Gonzales, 13, received the Peter O’Halloran Certificate for nailing a perfect score to lead 97 other Filipino students who garnered awards in the competition, which was simultaneously held in 42 countries last August.
Gonzales and the other winners were awarded during MTG’s 20th foundation anniversary celebration held at the Manila Grand Opera Hotel in Manila.
