There were 996 entries received from 23 countries competing in the NASA Ames Space Settlement Contest but the work submitted by Thidas Loku Bogahawattage, a grade 6 student at Taylor Park Elementary rose quickly to the top. He shared second place with a student from Romania for his project called “Prarthana.” His impressive finish means he’ll be giving a presentation at the 35th Annual International Space Development Conference to be held later this month in Puerto Rico.

Waterloo’s Fermat Contest is an opportunity for grade 11 students to have fun and to develop their mathematical problem solving ability. Interested students wrote the test in February – and the results are in! Moscrop ranked 1st in Canada – and an outstanding 5th in the World. Credit goes out to Moscrop Math Department Head, Danny Young. But that’s not all… Burnaby North was ranked 5th in Canada. Two Burnaby schools in the top 10! What’s in our drinking water – math theory?
The District is proud of a unique literacy tradition that began in 1985 and continues to make its mark, the WORDS Writing Project. Congratulations to our Burnaby schools students (K to gr 12 and adult learners) who were selected for publication in the 2015/16 anthology, A Way With Words, and special thanks to their families, teachers and principals for supporting their literacy journey. We also appreciate the generous support of our community partners, the Rotary Club of Burnaby, Royal Printers, the Burnaby Now, the Global Federation of Chinese Business Women & their President Juliet Lin, the Pioneer Education Society and McDonalds.
