The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport on June 15 congratulated 23 Cambodia students who won gold, bronze and silver medals at the Singapore and Asian Schools Math Olympiad 2021 (SASMO). A total of 28,760 students from 26 countries entered the competition.

The ministry said ASMO was established in 2006, and is the largest math competition in Asia.

The ministry added that this year, the Texas International Academy sent students to participate with two students winning gold medals, one a silver medal, 8 bronze medals and two received honorary trophies. Ten students from the World International School Cambodia also joined the competition. One student won a gold medal and nine others received bronze medals.

“Obviously, SASMO has a high level of competition and aims to expand the thinking potential of students who join the test and helps them improve in maths and critical thinking skills,” the ministry said.

The World International School Cambodia congratulated its students on wining gold and bronze medals at the international level.

“We are very proud of our brothers and sisters and we admire their ability and intelligence. The school firmly believes that our students will become a strong foundation for a great family society and human resource in participating in the development of our nation,” the school board said.
