Alstonvilles winning formula

Were not sure if its something in the water, but the students at Alstonville Public School (pictured) are certainly a brainy lot, placing equal first in the national Mathematics Challenge for Young Australians recently.

The students were asked to spend three weeks working on 16 mathematical problems and 20 of the 45 students scored a perfect 16, earning themselves high distinctions. The other students all received either distinctions or credits.

They are bright young things and it is a remarkable effort, said Alstonville Public Schools principal, Lorraine Bryant. The school always performs well but this year are the best results ever.
