- Promoting mathematics through recognising and rewarding students who achieve excellence
- organizing our activities and competitions
Thus, a total of 100 high achieving students will be chosen from schools in Fiji whose AMC registration will be paid through this sponsorship. Schools are requested to fill the attached form and email us by the end of this week.
