The final round of the Dutch Mathematics Olympiad took place on Friday 15 September and our school had a participant in the final round this year. Ethan Thiebaut from MP5 fell just short of the prizes, but was chosen to participate in the pledge program. This program is intended for students who are not yet in the sixth grade and with extra training may be selected for the Dutch Olympic team next year. Participants in the pledge program receive a number of days of specialised training. We congratulate Ethan on this result and on his election to the pledge programme
