Pranjal wins Gold Medal at the International Mathematics Olympiad

A befitting crowning glory to a string of superlative achievements in the past few months, Pranjal Srivastava has won the Gold Medal at the recently concluded International Mathematics Olympiad’s (IMO 2019) in UK.

IMO is revered as the biggest and toughest of the science competitions across the world and even the biggest countries like USA, China and Russia put their might and national pride behind this competition. What makes Pranjal’s medal noteworthy, are two things. Firstly, he is the youngest ever to win a gold medal from India and secondly, his medal successfully ended a seven year drought of gold for India. India as a team put up a stupendous performance in many years with 4 Silver medals in the tow. The competition which involved around 210 countries and more than 600 participants, was a memorable experience for Pranjal. He was able to meet and make friends across many countries.

Upon his return, he was felicitated at the HBCSE by legendary mathematician of international repute, Prof Mahan Maharaj of TIFR. We are proud of you Pranjal!

Pranjal Srivastava - 60th International Mathematics Olympiad

Pranjal Srivastava has once again been selected to represent India in the 60th International Mathematics Olympiad which will be held in UK in July 2019. In 2018 Pranjal was the youngest ever global participant to get a medal in IMO. Pranjal has also been invited to participate in the final round of prestigious Sharygin Geometry Olympiad conducted by Russia in August in honour of the famous Mathematician I F Sharygin. Pranjal was also invited to attend the International Olympiad in Informatics training camp at CMI in Chennai.

Abhishek Noronha- Trek to the Everest Base Camp

Abhishek Noronha of grade 9A trekked to the Mt. Everest Base Camp (EBC) during April 2 to April 16. The 14 day trek with freezing cold weather and negligible amount of oxygen proved highly challenging as well as a marvelous trek. Abhishek was fortunate to meet the great Sir Edmund Hillary’s son, Peter Hillary who encouraged him to peak the 8848m Mt. Everest. He reached a maximum height of 5540m (EBC). The average temperature in this area was -16 degree celsius and the probability of finishing this trek at 14 years is a mere 36.7 percent (Information provided by locals in Nepal).
