On February 28, five grade 10 students, along with one grade nine student, from Vankleek Hill Collegiate Institue, wrote the Caley Test, a contest aimed at measuring mathematical problem-solving skills. It is administered by the University of Waterloo’s Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing, and 24,499 students wrote the Caley Test in 2017. The students seen above were recognized by the university for their results. James Lauzon (left), a grade nine student, finished in the top 15 per cent. Jeremie Marsolais (centre), a grade 10 student, was among the top 5.2 per cent and was the highest scorer at VCI, and Natasha Kelly (right), also in grade 10, finished in the top 38 per cent.
