Feb 17, 2021

To the parents of students in the
General High School and
International Baccalaureate Programme


Psychico, February 17, 2021

Dear Parents,

Please be advised that the International Mathematics Competition “Kangaroo,” will take place on Saturday, May 22, 2021 at 9:00 a.m.  The competition is open to students from elementary grade 2 through high school 12.  You will be notified in due course as to whether the competition will be conducted in-person or online.

The philosophy of “Kangaroo” is entirely different from that of known competitions which require specific mathematical knowledge or that (only) seek out mathematically talented students.  Common sense, clear thinking and a love for mathematics suffice for anyone to tackle the questions/topics covered in the competition.  The questions, for the most part, are fun and intriguing to students.  There is an entry fee of 12,50 Euros to participate in the Competition and each student takes home commemorative gifts provided by the Organizers of the event.


This year’s testing center for College students is Athens College Junior High School.

Parents interested in having their children compete should complete the attached Registration Form and submit it, together with the entry fee of €12,50 to Ms. Maria Metsika (email: [email protected]) by April 20, 2021. 


• In the event of siblings, you need to complete a different Registration Form for each child and to provide a different email address for each (it is the email address with which each child will enter the completion in the event that the Competition is conducted online).

• No extension will be given for the submittal of the Registration forms after the deadline.
