Commending Greensprings School and talking about the competitiveness of the maths challenge, Erin Anderson, the Director of Global Programs at IMOC, said she is pleased with the constant support we showed our students. She said, “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. We would like to congratulate and thank the school for giving constant support to its students. It’s only with the school’s guidance that these students achieve such accomplishments.”

Dr Barney Wilson, our Deputy Director of Education, shared his remarks about the Elitist title that was accorded to the students, stating that it is a great birthday gift for our Executive Director, Mrs Lai Koiki. He remarked, “This outstanding news came in on the same day as our Executive Director’s birthday. So, it is a great birthday gift for her. Great news about our students’ success always brings joy to our hearts, and we know they will keep the flag flying high as they enter more competitions locally, nationally and globally.”
