THIS was the theme of the Thailand International Mathematics Competition (TIMC 2016), where Saien Moodley, a grade 7 pupil at Thomas More, represented South Africa in August.

He was the top member of the SA junior team as he was the only one to receive a merit certificate. He also received a bronze medal for IMAS.

Besides the maths, he was exposed to a myriad of cultures and was left in awe of the beautiful sights of Dubai, en route to Thailand and Chiang Mai.

Moodley says: "The Thai hospitality was incredible and this is an experience and challenge that will truly live with me forever. I am grateful for the opportunity to represent my country." - Supplied
