We initiated the Leadership Training Programme for Elite Students in Mathematics (數學尖子領袖培訓計劃) in the school year of 2017-2018. One of the objectives of this programme is to prepare young mathematicians for taking up challenges of international competitions. In this school year, totally 7 teams of students joined the World Mathematics Tournament Competition (WMTC) which was held from 22th November to 26th November 2017 at Beijing. One team of six students from our school (Cheung Teen Mathematics Team), two teams of six students from different catholic diocesan primary schools (Joint Catholic Diocesan Primary School Mathematics Team) and four teams of six students (our students were also involved) from different catholic diocesan secondary schools (Joint Catholic Diocesan Secondary School Mathematics Team) took part in the Advanced Level, Intermediate Level and Junior Level of the WMTC.
We are glad that our students 3B Wan Tsz Wai and 3C Ng Yuk Fung were awarded the Silver Medal.
2C Hui Ting Kwan, 3B Lam Ka Chai Markus,3C Ng Ching Hin, 4A Wang Zhao Zhong, 4A Tsang Hei Tung and 5B Tin Kan Shing were awarded the Bronze Medal
4B Chan Yin Wai was awarded the Merit Prize.
The team formed by the above students were also got the Merit Prize. Apart from a gifted education training programme for talented Mathematics students, this programme also served to cultivate CSWCSS students’ leadership and self-management skills. Through this collaborative activity with catholic diocesan primary schools, we could also showcase CSWCSS' progressive Mathematics curriculum amongst local schools which might in turn help advance the future development of Mathematics education.
