Last December 18, 2017, the Thailand International Mathematics Olympiad (TIMO) HEAT Round was held in Xavier School, San Juan. The TIMO HEAT Round aims to identify talented students who have a penchant for Mathematics and can think creatively. The competition aims to challenge the students to connect reasoning with mathematical knowledge, providing them with content and concepts that are not only beneficial to enhance their insightful strategies in problem solving, but also useful in unlocking their true mathematics potential. In other words, the ultimate goal of TIMO is to build the students’ confidence in Mathematics to take a career path in Science Technology and Engineering (STEM).
Seven high school students from Xavier School won medals during the HEAT Round and will advance to the international Round that will take place in Thailand on February 20 – 23, 2018. These students are
Mikhail Stefan Borbe of G7I (Gold)
Matthew Tansiongkun of G9B (Gold)
Steven Chua of G10A (Silver)
Philmon Wee of G10B (Silver)
Marcus Tansiongkun of G7B (Silver)
Richwyn Cedric Ong of G9C (Silver)
Tristan Uy of G9D (Bronze)
Xavier School is very proud and congratulates them for a job well done and continuously supports them as they continue to pursue and excel in all their endeavors. Luceat Lux!
