Dylan’s achievement is significant as more than 102 IEB accounting schools across the country participate in Banango over the course of several days, with more than 500 candidates doing the numbers during the four rounds of the game.

Under normal circumstances, the workshop would have been completed during a regular school day, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Pecanwood College agreed to compete online.
