Ti­mothy a top stu­dent

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

This week’s Stu­dent of the Week is Mata­mata Col­lege’s Aca­demic Cap­tain Ti­mothy Gray.

Ti­mothy has per­formed bril­liantly in his end of year Schol­ar­ship exam gain­ing an elite Out­stand­ing Schol­ar­ship Award in Year 13 Math­e­mat­ics with Statis­tics while still a year 12 stu­dent. This is a fine ef­fort from a young man who is a high achiever in all his sub­jects, es­pe­cially math­e­mat­ics and physics.

It is no sur­prise that Ti­mothy’s aca­demic success has as­sisted the Col­lege’s Fu­ture Prob­lem Solv­ing team, of which he is a mem­ber, to win the na­tional Fu­ture Prob­lem Solv­ing com­pe­ti­tion. This means they are off to the World Champs in Bloom­ing­ton, In­di­ana, USA in June. Ti­mothy is also well known for his pas­sion and abil­ity in mu­sic.

He has a gen­uine abil­ity to en­ter­tain as he has proven on many oc­ca­sions play­ing the pi­ano and elec­tronic key­board at school events.

Univer­sity study beck­ons in 2014 with en­gi­neer­ing and physics be­ing the key fo­cus as Ti­mothy con­tin­ues to strive for success.
