Mazal Tov to our Ulpaniada Math Contest Finalists!
We are so pleased to announce that Yael Fishel (Gr. 12) and Aliza Hochsztein (Gr. 11) have made it to the final round of the Ulpaniada Math Contest given through Michlalah Jerusalem College. They have been invited to Israel for four days to take the final test and to tour the country through the college. The winners of that last round will be awarded prizes by the Minister of Education, Mr. Gideon Sa'ar. This is an extremely impressive accomplishment which required not only strong math skills but also complex reasoning skills. To put the magnitude of this achievement in perspective, the competition began in the first round with approximately 2000 girls from Israel, USA, Canada, England, South Africa, France and Australia. There will be around 80 girls in the final of which 18 will be coming from outside of Israel especially for the event. That's the top 4%. Wow! We are so proud of them. Kol Hakavod also goes to our Math Chair, Mrs. Sabrina Bernath, and the entire Math Department for their tireless efforts on behalf of our students.
