Callum Tyrer, a Grade 6 pupil from Howick Preparatory School, was recently placed 1st in South Africa in the Science section of the World Education Games that took place from the 05 – 07 March 2013.

The World Education Games is an annual global online challenge to get all students (4-18 years of age) excited about learning, and to give the top students in all schools an opportunity to see how they measure up against the best in the world. Last year, over 5 million pupils were a part of what is now the world’s largest online education event.

Split over three days and focussing on literacy, mathematics and science, the World Education Games is a hugely exciting and engaging way to promote learning and education across the world. Pupils from Howick Preparatory School entered all three categories and are very proud of Callum’s achievement of being placed 1st in South Africa.
