QE boys triumph in regional Mathematics competition

A team of four QE pupils beat off 35 other teams to win the regional Team Maths Challenge and secure a place in the competition’s national finals.

Team captain Nigethan Sathiyalingam, together with Shane Mahen, Gabriel Gendler and Mahdi Elango, combined mathematical, communication and teamwork skills to win the regional event hosted by Haberdashers’ Aske’s School for Girls in Elstree. The Team Maths Challenge was conceived by the United Kingdom Mathematics Trust to offer pupils a way of expressing and developing their enjoyment of Mathematics.

The team, which is drawn from Years 8 and 9, will compete at the national finals in the Camden Centre, London, on 22nd June – the first time that Queen Elizabeth’s School has reached the ultimate stage of this competition.
