Star College Science and Maths Students Score High in Nigeria 2013:

Seven students from Star College were selected to participate in the highly esteemed 4th International Science Olympiad (ISO) recently held in Abuja, Nigeria. The competition encompassed five major subjects consisting of Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Informatics and Mathematics.

Over 15 countries participate in this ISO. The top students who demonstrate exceptional performance in the five sciences were selected by their countries. They felt honoured to participate in the ISO as students may only participate in this Olympiad once in their schooling career. The team had a challenging competition time with over 5 hours of continuous examinations per day but they proved in the end to be highly successful.

4 Silver medals were awarded to Sankaran Reddy, Yesholan Perumal, Refentse Kekana and Junnuth Hussein Caunhye.

3 Gold medals were awarded to Shihal Munesher Sapry, Veshalin Naidoo and Luthando Mdadane.
