Two teams of our most gifted mathematics students travelled to Canberra last week to compete in the ANU Mathematics Day which is hosted for students in NSW and ACT. We are the only Sydney school invited. The competition format is a series of challenging mathematical problems that are completed in teams in a set time frame, over a whole day. Amongst our group are two students with outstanding achievements in the Australian Mathematical Olympiads, Jordan Ka Truong and Hilton Nguyen. In true Tech spirit the team chose to share their expertise across both teams. My thanks to their teachers Ms Dinos and Mr Sender for giving their time to accompany students.
