Mathew Goodrum of Pecanwood College High School achieved third place in the North West Maths Olympiad. In March 2020 the high school wrote the first round of the South African Maths Olympiad. Several pupils qualified for the second round. The second round took place in July 2020 for the Grade 8s and 9s and in September for the Grade 10s to 12s. Mathew’s teachers are extremely proud of him and believe that this achievement can be attributed to his natural mathematical ability and his dedication to the subject. The high school’s mathematics department has awarded Mathew with a gift voucher for Bargain Books.
