The little genius from Beaconhouse Sri Inai beat maths enthusiasts from  Japan, China, Korea and Singapore to emerge as the champion at the prestigious Mangahigh East Asia Maths Ninja Challenge 2019. Involving Maths games and adaptive quizzes, the competition had around 14,240 participants from all across East Asia.

Beaconhouse Sri Inai International entered 372 students in the competition and brought home a collective total of 76 medals, with 36,404 points (more than double the second place winner). 

“I am incredibly excited about the win. Maths is one of my greatest passions so to have done so well in the competition was a big highlight for me. The Maths Ninja Challenge was so unique and getting to compete with my fellow students with the help of our teachers from Beaconhouse Sri Inai was such a memorable experience,” said Chow.

The format of the Mangahigh East Asia Maths Ninja Challenge 2019 was an online maths competition that ran for 12 days, during which students were assigned maths related activities on a daily basis, with 3 points allotted for each activity. Students with more than 200 points received gold medals while the school with the highest accumulated points was named the overall winner.

“This win is one that we are truly proud of. The competition was incredibly tough with students from all across East Asia. So to have won and by such a substantial amount is a real testament to the hard work and dedication of the teachers and students throughout the competition period. I believe this win is also reflective of how effective the Beaconhouse holistic and innovative approach to education is. We are always looking for new and creative ways to inspire our children to embrace learning and I’m confident our out-of-the-box methods helped our students prepare for the unique challenges posed during the challenge,” said Nicki Coombs, Executive Principal for Beaconhouse Sri Inai International School.
We sure are impressed by Cherly’s achievement! Do you think you could do it?
