Last November 29, 2020, three High School Xaverians were recognized by the World Math Team Competition (WMTC).
Warmest congratulations to the following students for their outstanding performance in the event:
- Josh Daniel Cua (G11A) – Silver
- Matthew Shawn Tansiongkun (G12B) – Gold
- Richwynn Cedric Ong (G12A) – Silver
The WMTC is a unique competition in its own right. In contrast with conventional competitions, the WMTC is a team-oriented contest. For several days, teams comprising students from all around the globe gather to not only compete, but also share experiences and learn about one another’s culture. The delegates are immersed in academic and cultural activities while touring prominent sites together. In light of the pandemic, this year’s WMTC had to be conducted through a hybrid of on-site and off-site models. Although parts of the competition had to be held online, the contest was still able to embody the spirit of mathematics.
