At the 2015 South African Mathematics Olympiad Awards Function held in Durban on Saturday, 19 September it was announced that Taariq Mowzer in Grade 8 and Yaseen Mowzer in Grade 11, were awarded Silver Medals.

 The SA Mathematics Olympiad is a three-round contest for high schools, written at two levels: junior (grades 8 and 9) and seniors (Grades 10, 11 and 12). The learners participate in three rounds. Those who score 50% or more in the first round participate in the second round. The third round is for the top 100 in round two. The top learner in each level receives a Gold Award and 9 learners receive Silver Awards.

We are extremely proud of Taariq and Yaseen for bringing such honour to Fairbairn College.
