2023 Squad Announcement

Last week we hosted the 2023 Annual NZMOC Training Camp, which was a great success. It was nice to hold the camp in person after holding the previous one online due to Covid-19. Thanks to the generous sponsorship of Jane Street, everyone had a lot of fun, staff and students alike. Lecturers gave as much maths to the students as they could, and the standard at the camp was very high. I am very proud of all the students, as even getting to the camp is a fantastic achievement.
