The Australasian Problem Solving Mathematical Olympiads (APSMO) is a not-for-profit, professional organisation that offers a range of mathematical competitions for students aged from around eight to 14. The programs are unique in that they focus on the students’ ability to solve mathematical problems in a creative manner – as opposed to simply reaching a solution using a prescribed method.
The Maths Olympiad is an ideal complement to the school curriculum. The main aims of the competitions are to: Introduce students to important mathematical concepts:

· Teach major strategies and develop flexibility for problem solving
· Foster creativity and ingenuity and strengthen intuition
· Stimulate enthusiasm and enjoyment of mathematics
· Provide for the satisfaction, joy and thrill of meeting challenges

Congratulations to Senuthmi, Emily and Ameesha on being Regional Racquetball champions and runners up at the State competition.
