2021 Squad Announcement

This week we hosted the 2021 Annual NZMOC Training Camp, which was a great success. 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.
