Prime Scholars Academy School, Karu, Abuja, has emerged winner of the fourth edition of Best Brain Concept Mathematical competition beating nine other schools who competed in the mathematics quiz.
Mr. Jude Numfor, the organiser of the Mathematics competition, said the event was aimed at stimulating interest in mathematics and help students recognise their potential.
He said that participants of the competition were selected from 10 schools in FCT, with good grades in mathematics.
In his words:
“The primary aim of the competition is to encourage the study of mathematics and to source funds to train intelligent but less privileged students in the society.
The first three events was an efforts to get to this stage, in this edition we were able to get sponsors for three students for scholarship.
I am impressed with the fact that we are achieving our goals of helping the less privileged ones in the society.
We call on other Nigerians to help us breach the gap between the educated and uneducated in our society.
Mathematics teachers are not well motivated in terms of job but I’ll encourage them to do their best for the students.”
Mr. Bako Gideon, a mathematics teacher with Prime Scholars Academy School, said he was proud to see the students he coached win the competition.
Mr. Gideon added that there was no monetary value attached to the trophy, but the feeling of being the champions was great and called on corporate organisations to support the concept.
Out of 10 schools that participated in the 2018 Best Brain Concept Mathematical competition, Prime Scholars Schools Karu came first, Genesis Christian Academy Kuje came second while Noble Heights Academy Kubwa emerged third.
