Last month, Fairmont Preparatory Academy sent a team to compete in the annual University of Toronto National Biology Competition. The contest was quite large with a total of 276 schools and 4137 contestants participating. Teams hailed from not only all over the country, but from all over the world. The 4137 contestants represented Canada, USA, Malaysia, Turkey, and China.
This was our first year competing in this event, however the 11 juniors we brought did not let the novelty of the competition hold them back from an outstanding performance. The 11 Medical Magnet students led the Fairmont Preparatory team to a 28 out of 276 overall school ranking. The accolades continued on an individual level with Duy Khoi D., Kennith S. and Allison C. receiving recognition as "Notion Biology Scholars," and each ranked in the top 250 of the 4137 total students! The team’s hard work and dedication was clearly evident in their performance! Congratulations on a spectacular showing!
