Grades 5 & 6 Students Earn Perfect Score in Global Math Contest
Last week, Grade 5 student Nicholas Han and Grade 6 student Charlize Bianchi received the exciting news that they had tied for first place, both earning a perfect score in the Caribou Mathematics Competition! This worldwide online contest takes place in November, January, February, April and May. Each time, six contests are offered, one for each of the grade levels 2, 3/4, 5/6, 7/8, 9/10 and 11/12 and each one in English, French, Persian and Mandarin.
A number of our Grade 6 students have participated in these contests in the past, including Shawn Dai in 2022 and Kaitlyn Zhang in 2020 who both received perfect scores of 18/18.
Many private and international schools take part in this competition and participating countries include China, Iran, Canada, the United States, Turkey, Russia, Dominican Republic, Uganda and Germany, to name just a few. The average score on this final test was 6.99, which reflects the high level of difficulty.
Charlize Bianchi had this to say, “I feel really proud of my accomplishment. It took a lot of effort and I’m glad I took the time to do it. CDS gives you so many opportunities to learn. It is just up to you to take advantage of it.”
CDS wishes to recognize and acknowledge the land on which the school operates. For thousands of years, these have been the traditional lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. We also recognize the traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat, Anishinaabe and the Haudenosaunee peoples who also shared this land. CDS respects the relationship with these lands and recognizes that our connection can be strengthened by our continued relationship with all First Nations, by acknowledging our shared responsibility to respect and care for these lands and waters for future generations.
