AMESA Mathematics Awards.
n 1977 Mona Leeuwenburg initiated, organised and ran a “mini-mathematics” competition for Grade 7 learners in the Cape Peninsula. It proved to be popular with both learners and teachers and became an annual event. In 1986 the Competition was extended to other grades. In 1995 the name was changed to the AMESA Mathematics Challenge. In 2011 AMESA requested SAMF to take over the administration of the Challenge, while AMESA gives academic leadership (e.g. about the nature of the questions) and AMESA Regional Organisers still organise locally.
The following Glenwood boys were awarded Gold Medals at the annual KZN Amesa Prize Giving on Saturday, 27 November:
Form II: N Hardman and W Johns.
Form IV: M Naidoo.
Form V: T Hardman and S Chetty.
Well done boys!
