This year we had a very successful Otago Problem Solving (OPS) campaign. All year 7/8 ākonga and some year 6s take part. Those who gain a merit grade or higher receive a certificate. And that took place today. We had 10 merit recipients and 1 excellence which was Liam Jones. This put him forward for the “Final Challenge” - 20 of the hardest questions. A huge 👏 to these mathematicians for their achievements.
