Leah Suchet, Vivian Ho, (both Grade 8) and Hannah Riekert (Grade 9), from St John’s D.S.G. were selected to participate in the Interprovincial Maths Olympiad held at Hilton College last month. Of the 30 Juniors selected from schools in the Midlands and KZN Inland region, Vivian obtained the highest score in the individual competition. Both Vivian and Leah were selected for the Junior ‘A’ team. This team was placed 11th out of 36 teams in the Interprovincial Competition. Also of interest is that of the 30 pupils selected, only 6 were girls, 3 of which were our St John’s girls!
