-Ms. Tejashree Vesvikar

“Mathematics is the abstract key which turns the lock of the physical universe” is rightly said by John Polkinghome. With a view to empower students with mathematical skills like problem solving, critical and logical thinking Silverzone Foundation, an NGO which aims in promoting competitive awareness among the school children conducts an International Olympiad of Mathematics every year. The International Olympiad of Mathematics Exam was conducted on November 13, 2019 in the Primary Section of Don Bosco High School Matunga with the support of Fr. Bernard Fernandes, Principal of the school and under the supervision of Mrs. Griselda Fernandes, Head Teacher of the Primary section who co-ordinated meticulously with the Silverzone Foundation.
The exam was conducted after school hours from 4.00 pm to 5.00 pm. The enrolled students came well prepared for the exam according to the given schedule. 162 students appeared for the Exam.11 students gave an outstanding result and have brought laurels and accolades for the school by winning medals and certificates. The first three rank holders were awarded Gold, Silver and Bronze medals. These students have scored more than 50 marks in their respective classes. The other students received participation certificates. The study material for the exam was provided by the Foundation and helped the students to practice the various Math concepts and gave them a better understanding of the format and pattern of the exam. The parents were positive about enrolling their ward for the exam. A few teachers willingly played the role of the examiner to supervise the exam.
