“In class, he solves mathematical problems faster without using counters, rather using his brain.”

Sedia says to prepare for the competition they stay behind after school for extra lessons.

“We have been putting in the hard work to make sure he is ready for the competition and so far he has not disappointed us.

“We work on the previous question papers not only for this grade but also for Grade Four and Five.

“I also give him homework to work on with the help of his parents.

“We are expecting him to perform to his best abilities in the provincial competition to be able to progress to the nationals,” she says.
