SEVEN mathletes of Ligao National High School copped nine medals in the International Mathematics Open for Young Achievers (IMOYA) 2017 in Singapore.

Yna P. Dy and Maria Joana Theresa Rabe, each bagged a gold medal in the Junior Division for Grades 7 and 8; Lady Propogo, silver medal; Jan Ian Greg Gangawan and
Rob Clero Ribaya, bronze medals; and Maria Janella Gangawan got a bronze medal, for Intermediate Division for Grades 9 and 10.

For the team category, the Philippine delegates were grouped according to their division and competed with mathletes from nine other Asian countries. Lana Maxene
Ordiales, grade 7 and Maria Janella Gangawan, grade 9, each won a silver medal while Lady Propogo, grade 7, won a bronze medal.

Prior to the conduct of the competition, the mathletes attended different intensive trainings in Aquinas University as sponsored by Mathematics Teachers Guild (MTG) of
the Philippines; and in-house coaching in Tagaytay and Sta. Cruz Manila through the Mathematics Olympiad Summer Training Program (MOSTP) by the Mathematics
Development Academy of the Philippines (MathDAP). They have also been trained for more than a month by their teacher-coaches in Ligao National High School namely
Ms. Charlene Mae Zabala, Ms. Gina Rentoy, Ms. Luisa Joy Residilla, Ms. Shuri Honda, Ms. Zierra Mae Penafiel and Mr. Ryan Casulang.

“To God be all the glory,’’ this was the reaction of Mrs. Carmelita A. Sinson, the Secondary School Principal IV of the school after learning about the success of the
students and teachers.  ‘’Every centavo was worth it,’’ the Mathematics Department Head, Mrs. Maybelle de la Rama expressed her gratitude to the teachers who
contributed to the success of the students.

The delegates from LNHS left for Changi Airport on September 1 and immediately had the quiz the next day at the United World College, Singapore. They were
accompanied by Mrs. Janet Gangawan, the mother of the two contestants, Ms. Shuri Honda and Mr. Ryan Casulang.

No funds from the school’s MOOE were spent for the travel since donors such as the Congressman of the Third District of Albay, Hon. Fernando V. Gonzalez, LGU-Ligao
City, SSG, GPTA, TAF Canteen, administrators, alumni, teachers, clubs and students extended a hand in pursuing the participation of the mathletes.

Meanwhile, 87 students passed the Mathematical Challenge for Filipino Kids Training Program who will undergo the same stages of trainings this year.
