Haileybury Almaty Shines at National Science Olympiad with Four Students Placing in Top Ranks
From March 20-25, Shymkent hosted the annual National Science Olympiad, a fierce intellectual competition among the country's brightest students in grades 9-11(12) in the fields of mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, geography, and computer science. Haileybury Almaty School proudly sent four representatives to compete, and their impressive results speak for themselves.
In particular, Insar, a Year 12 student, was awarded a gold medal (first-degree diploma) in chemistry, while Batyrkhan and Mahmud, both Year 13 students, earned silver medals (second-degree diplomas) in mathematics. A third Year 13 student, Akezhan, was awarded a bronze medal (third-degree diploma) in physics.
Following their success at the Olympiad, Insar and Batyrkhan were invited to attend national team training camps for their respective subjects. These camps offered students the opportunity to compete for spots on Kazakhstan's national teams, and Insar and Batyrkhan proved themselves among the best of the best.
Insar was selected for Kazakhstan's national team in chemistry (one of only 15 students from the country), and will represent Kazakhstan at the 57th International Mendeleev Olympiad in Chemistry. This prestigious competition will be held in Astana, Kazakhstan from May 1-6, 2023, and will bring together teams from 22 countries from around the world.
Meanwhile, Batyrkhan was selected for Kazakhstan's national team in mathematics (one of only six students from the country) and will compete in the 64th International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO). This event is the world championship for high school students in mathematics and will be held in Chiba, Japan from July 2-13, 2023, with more than 100 countries participating.
Haileybury Almaty is extremely proud of the accomplishments of these four students at the National Science Olympiad, and wishes them the best of luck as they move on to represent Kazakhstan at these international competitions.
