STAFF REPORT KHI: After grappling with numbers and puzzles in an hour-long international competition, a Pakistani student has emerged victorious and bagged a bronze medal for his performance.
Muzammil Rasheed, an A levels student at the OASYS School in Clifton, participated in the fifth International Young Mathematicians Convention recently held in Lucknow, India, and secured the prize. “Had there been other Pakistani schools participating, the country would have won a sizeable haul of medals,” Rasheed told the media after arriving Pakistan with medal.
Though his team members Karan Talreja, Sameer Ali, Tooba Ayesha and Alina Channa didnt win any awards, they were happy that this was the third time the school took part in the international event and brought back a prize.
Lucknows City Montessori School has been organising the event every two years since 2004. The five-member from OASYS, the only one from Pakistan, competed in the internationally recognised contest, with around 600 competitors from across the world.
OASYS School coordinator Majid Rasool, who accompanied the team, said that students already good at Maths were selected to participate.
The teachers gave them extra attention for two months. “It is a matter of pride not only for the school but for the country. [The students] won a bronze medal in a mathematics competition.”
