Deeper Life High School Emerges Best in American Mathematics Competitions
The Deeper Life High School, Uyo Campus has
emerged overall best in the just concluded
American Mathematics Competitions in Akwa
Ibom State organized by The Mathematical
Association of America and IAGIFTED for
secondary schools in Nigeria.
Students of Deeper Life High school floored other
contenders from top schools in Akwa Ibom state
to clinch 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th positions. Two SS1
students; Jewel Udoudo and Angel Patrick took
1st and 2nd positions respectively. A JSS3
student, Esther Ima John emerged 3rd while two
other JSS3 students, Chinenye Chikere and
Wobom Joshua Igo clinched 4th position.
Reacting to the academic exploit, the Principal of
Deeper Life High School, Uyo campus, Mrs.
Eunice Ndulue expressed happiness over the
success story of the school.
She added that both teaching and non-teaching
staffers of the school are poised to do more. “I
am happy for this success. The students were
celebrated in the Assembly. This is an
encouragement that our efforts in impacting
knowledge are not in vain. By this success story,
we are encouraged to do more for our students to
make them become the best in all ramifications of
life,” the Principal said.
On how the students of that school are fairing in
other fields, the principal said the school is not
doing badly in science, ICT, Arts among other
fields of endeavour. She revealed that the learning
environment is positive, competitive while
providing opportunities for every child to excel.
Deeper Life High School Uyo campus is a
coeducational school, which started five years
ago. The school, which only admits new students
into JSS1, has a 252 (two hundred and fifty-two)
student population and 70 staff strength.
Giving insight into the examination, Principal
Consultant for IAGIFTED, Professor Adewale
Solarin said the idea behind the exam is to
prepare Nigeria students to compete favorably
with their peers all over the world. “We have been
coordinating AMC exams for nearly a decade now
while Kangaroo Sans Frontiers joined three years
ago. The exam is for all students in private and
public schools from primary to secondary.
Interestingly, this is not a conventional exam we
give to our students in school. We go the extra
mile to make it a duty that our students should be
able to compete favorably with other students all
over the world. The idea is to challenge the
student’s intellect and give them a world view.”
Speaking to newsmen, Head of Department,
Mathematics of the Deeper Life High School Uyo
campus, Mr. Morgan Emem and the Mathematics
teacher that drilled the students for the
competition, Mr. Peter Ajeh noted it was an
exciting moment coaching students for the
competition added that facilities provided by the
school, willingness to learn and the capacity of
teachers coupled with strong determination to
bring out excellence in the students were the
reason for the success recorded. They promised
to maintain the tempo.
Meanwhile, the American Mathematics
Competitions are a series of examinations and
curriculum materials that build problem-solving
skills and mathematical knowledge in middle and
high school students.
