CHADLEIGH Ownhouse, a Grade 12 learner from Alexander Road High School, has been placed in the top three of his age group for the second year in a row at the annual Rhodes University Mathematics Experience (RUME).

Chadleigh, who lives in Extension 22 in Bethelsdorp, is a participant in United Through Sport’s Senior School of Excellence Programme and has been a beneficiary of United Through Sport’s programmes for the past five years.

The RUME was hosted earlier this year in Grahamstown where Chadleigh competed against representatives from 30 other schools in the Eastern Cape.

He scored second overall in the Grade 11 to 12 category in the mini-Olympiad.

“Maths is very easy to me. It involves a lot of problem solving and creative thinking.

“You have to be innovative in the way you solve the problems,” said Chadleigh.

He is no stranger to performing well at the RUME competition, as he last year came first in his age group during the mini-Olympiad.

Combining two years worth of scholarship prizes, he has accumulated approximately R100 000 worth of tertiary tuition scholarships for studying at Rhodes University in 2018.

His parents, Andrea and Neil, motivate him to always do his best and are very proud of his most recent achievements.
