Another unpublished post; drafted last March 3, 2014. It was a first time for my Big Bunso to join an Inter-School Competition. He represented his school for the Mathematics Challenge. Our man placed third among 3o plus contestants. Big Bunso is now in Grade 6 and he is still hoping he gets to represent his school again for the Math Quiz Bee. Among all the subjects, his favorite is Mathematics.
For months, he undergoes training. He doesn’t complain. Instead, he would happily relay to me new Math discoveries and new formula learned. He is so enthusiastic and would count days leading to the big day.
March 3 is the big day. The auditorium of Our Lady of Fatima University in Lagro is jam-packed with students, faculty members, and parents from different schools in Quezon City.
