The Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC) is a competition with 30 mathematics problems that demonstrate the importance and relevance of mathematics in students’ everyday lives and is run by the Australian Maths Trust. The competition challenges students to apply their mathematical problem-solving skills across a range of topics within the Australian Curriculum. The AMC 2022 ran on both Thursday and Friday of Week 2 in Term 3, with 416 students in the Senior School sitting the 75-minute online competition.

All Mathematics students in the Senior school were invited to enter, with those in Advanced and Extended Mathematics classes strongly encouraged to participate. There were three divisions run within the Senior School: Junior (Years 7 and 8), Intermediate (Years 9 and 10) and Senior (Years 11 and 12).

St Peter’s College students performed exceptionally across all year levels, with the following students receiving the national prize for their respective year levels. This is an outstanding achievement, which is only awarded to 1 in every 300 students who sit the competition in that division. We are extremely proud of these students.

  • Carbon Li – Prize for Year 7 Junior AMC and winner of the Best in School Award
  • William Carrigan – Prize for Year 9 Intermediate AMC (second year in a row)
