Centre for Mathematics and Computing Math Competition

Each year, our ninth, tenth, and eleventh grade students take part in the Centre for Mathematics and Computing Math Competition organized by the University of Waterloo in Canada. This year, the contest will take place from 8 am-9:30 am on Wednesday, February 27. This contest provides students with an opportunity to deepen their thinking, synthesize their learning, and challenge themselves. Each grade level test is named after a mathematician: Pascal (9th grade), Cayley (10th grade), and Fermat (11th grade). Parents of ninth, tenth, and eleventh grade students, please encourage your children to rest early and to eat breakfast beforehand. Good luck to all our students! Seventh and eighth grade students will participate in the Gauss contest in May.

High School Program - Next Thursday and Friday

High School students not attending MUNiSC will have the opportunity to participate in one of three tracks next Thursday and Friday.

  1. Film Track – Students will participate in a hands-on learning opportunity. Students will work in small groups to create a short film, learning elements of film production along the way. Awards will be handed out for the best short films.
  2. Painting Track – Students will work in small groups to work on mural and drama painting projects. Students will earn service hours for being involved in this track. The space in this track is limited.
  3. Study Track – Students can use this time to catch up on school work. Students will be in a study hall, with some opportunity to work with the teachers that are not at MUNiSC.

The school will provide special food on those days. Students will have pizza on Thursday and Borderland Tacos on Friday.

Students will be emailed instructions on how to sign up for a track.
