Labasa College has been crowned the new winners in the Secondary School category of the Team Mathematics Competition which ended last Saturday.

The competition was held at the Yat Sen School Hall in Suva with more than 500 stu­dents from schools all around Fiji taking part in the one-day event.

The school’s Head of Mathematics Depart­ment Ritesh Goundar said they were proud to have participated in the competition and achieved great results for this year.

Mr Goundar said the school fielded at least 20 team members into the contest.

“This is a national competition and for our school to have achieved third place in Year 10 is very overwhelming,” he said.

“Our students had all qualified and we are proud to host some fine young mathemati­cians.

“Mathematics is a basic skill that we must have and it won’t do any good if we do not put emphasis on mathematics.”

Mr Goundar also said it was the mind-sets that needed to change in thinking that math­ematics was a difficult subject and there was a need to work together.

Mr Goundar also acknowledged the parents and teachers who supported them during the competition.

Last year’s champions in this category was Swami Vivekananda College
