Many congratulations to our students who raised £2,011.30 towards the Kingston Hospital Dementia Appeal at our Mufti day in November 2015. The Kingston Hospital Charity’s aim is to raise £750,000 to transform ten elderly care wards that are in desperate need of updating and improvement for patients with dementia. Grateful thanks too to Ahmed Alhussni, a Deputy Head Boy in our Sixth Form, who organised the collection. He is pictured below with Michelle Bartsch, Head of Fundraising for the Kingston Hospital Charity.
It is a privilege to be invited to take part in the British Maths Olympiad (BMO). Only 1000 students across the country are invited to take part, having been selected on the basis of performances in the UKMT Senior Maths Challenge, from more than 100,000 entrants in more than 2,000 schools. Ten Tiffin boys qualified to sit the BMO.
Six of those ten achieved certificates of distinction – placing them in the top 250 nationally. They were Bemin Sheen, Navonil Neogi, Lorenzo Honegger, Jim Tse, Maxi Purewal and Vincent Trieu. Bemin was also awarded a medal and a book prize.
Three boys, Bemin (Upper Sixth), Navonil and Vincent (both Year 10) have subsequently been invited to sit BMO round 2; only 100 students are invited to sit this paper which will be used to select the UK team for the 57th International Mathematical Olympiad in Hong Kong later this year.
We are very proud of the boys’ achievements!
