James Benedict D. Carlos of Montessori De Sagrada Familia added another bacon in this year’s Bulacan Private Schools Association (BulPriSA) winnings when he won 3rd place overall in Mathematics Level 1 Quiz Bee held at Dr. Yanga’s Colleges, Bocaue, Bulacan, Oct. 19.
After winning the silver medal in the district level of the competition, the trainings and practices he have never mellowed and he is very grateful for the fact that his coach, Mrs. Jovelina Inductivo is supportive of him.
“Ang training po namin ay M,W,F (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) after uwian po. Nagsisimula po ng 3:00 hanggang 4:00. Oral (training) po sya. Binibigyan po ko ni T. Jovy ng formula sa perimeter po at area tapos po nagdidiscuss din sya” Carlos said.
Ever since, Carlos is a consistent honor student but this was his first time in competing and representing the school in an inter-school Math competition.
Moreover, the young math wizard was indeed nervous during the contest, but then he managed to come up 2nd in the District Meet and now he hitched the 3rd spot after competing with the best problem solvers in Bulacan. “Kinakabahan po nung una kasi first time” he claimed.
There were 4 of them who tied up for the places of second to fifth. He outdone the other competitors and thus winning 3rd place. He answered 9 out of 13 complex mathematics problems that undergone an intense deliberation among the coaches.
This experience taught him a lot of things. He even said that he enjoyed competing. “Exciting po sya (BULPRISA) at memorable” Carlos claimed.
