St Aloysius’ College, Birkirkara, recently won the 10th Malta Mathematics Olympiad, beating 31 other colleges and schools from Malta and Gozo that took part in this year’s competition.

The winning team was made up of Haydn Cassar, Alan Brincat, Jason Spiteri and Robert Sciberras Herrera, and their coach Jeanette Aquilina.

The Malta Olympiad, which is organised by the Department of Curriculum Management of the Directorate for Quality and Standards in Education every two years, was first held in 2000 and St Aloysius’ College has won it five times.

The contest aims to identify talented mathematics students and give them the opportunity to work together as a team in a spirit of healthy competition, under the guidance of coaches, to discover and enjoy the fun of the problem-solving aspect of mathematics.
