December 9, 2011 - Thirty-five of Robbins Hebrew Academy’s Grade 7 and 8 students from Bayview and Bathurst Campuses wrote the challenging on-line Caribou math contest hosted by Brock University. All of the students were engaged for the full hour and enjoyed the experience. Fifteen hundred and eighty students wrote the contest in the province of Ontario and nineteen hundred and twenty five students wrote the contest nationwide. Twenty-five of our students were in the 50th percentile. Congratulations are extended to all students. A special mention goes to Lewis A. from the Bayview Campus who placed 1st place overall for private school boards and 8th overall in the province.
