Olympiad Participation at International Level

Submitted by robin on Mon, 01/09/2012 - 1:19pm

National Science Olympiads co-ordinates the South African Olympiads in:

1. Natural Sciences (Grades 4 to 9)

2. Life Sciences (Grades 10 and 11)

3. Physical Sciences (Grades 10 and 11)

Over the last four years, our most successful Under 15s have participated in the International Junior Science Olympiads (IJSO):

3.1 South Korea in 2008 - Sereshan Pillay (Crawford College - North Coast) won a bronze medal

3.2 Azerbaijan (Baku) in 2009 - Suhail Dada (Maritzburg College) won a bronze medal

3.3 Nigeria (Abuja) in 2010 - James Young (Westville Boys) and Imraan Khan (Crawford College North Coast) won bronze medals.

3.4 South Africa (Durban) in 2011 - five students won bronze medals.

2011 has been our most successful year yet. We also achieved 19th place overall out of 40 countries. This is a major improvement in our International rankig in the Science Olympiads. We are proud that Imraan Khan (Crawford College -North Coast) and FOUR Star College (Westville - KZN) students Divyan Moodley, Serayen Govender, Muhammed Suleman and Thiolan Naidoo have excelled at the International event. Mohamad Imraan Khan   has excelled over the last wo years and was unlucky not to get a silver medal this time round.

Congratulations to these students, their teachers and parents for theseoutstanding achievements.

Good news for South Africa is that this year in 2012 we will be participating in FOUR International Events:

1. July 2012 - in Washington as Observers (1 or 2 Teachers) in the International Chemistry Olympiad.

2. July 2012 - in Estonia as particiapants (5 students + 2 Teachers) in the International Physics Olympiad.
