Annual Mathlympics for All Singapore Primary Schools



This competition is organized by Learners’ Connections Pte Ltd.        


As we have done so in the past years, this year we will continue to donate a percentage of our proceeds from the Annual Mathlympics towards the support of children battling with cancer through SingHealth Duke-NUS Paediatric Academic Clinical Programme – CCF-Psychosocial and Supportive Care for Paediatric Oncology Programme.


Every year, thousands of brilliant children take part in our Annual Mathlympics competition. It is meaningful that this competition can be a platform to create awareness and support. To read more, please click here
