Dream first in world maths test
A PUPIL at Gayhurst School is celebrating after beating 30,000 children to come first in a worldwide maths challenge.
Aiden Gajdhar, along with his classmates, took part in the superTmatik Online Mental Math Competition, in which 200,000 pupils from more than 20 different countries competed, and each child who entered was up against others in the same age group.
It took place at school and Aiden’s friends, James Gowers and Tarun Eapen, both came sixth in their respective age groups.
Aiden said: “I had a feeling I would be place quite high up but I didn’t dream I’d come first.” He puts his amazing mathematical ability down to his dad who Aiden says also loves maths.
Mr Whitaker, head of maths, said: “This is an incredible achievement for all three boys and Aiden’s win is truly outstanding. We are very proud of him here at Gayhurst.”
