The McDonald College student, Evan Luc-Tran, recently defeated a staggering 308,138 students from 130 countries to place first in Australia (for the second year in a row) and fourth in the world in the Mathletics 2022 World Maths Day competition. The year nine student at The McDonald College is on a winning streak after winning the inaugural Prime Minister's Spelling Bee last year.

Head of Mathematics Ms Meni Contos said they had accelerated Evan to Year 11 Extension 1 Maths.

"While this means he misses some of his classes, he is so self-directed and motivated that he always stays up-to-date with his studies," Ms Contos said.

Like all students at The McDonald College, Evan balances his academic studies with his other passions. He has aspirations to be an actor.

"I enjoy being in front of the camera and seeing how things work behind the scenes. While I've been lucky to score some great professional gigs, I know that breaking into the performance industry isn't easy - so it's good to know that if I don't make it, I'll have other options," Evan said.

"I love coming here. Everyone at the school is very supportive. The staff regularly check in to make sure that I am okay and coping with the extra work," he said.

Principal, Mrs Maxine Kohler said, The McDonald College was committed to tailoring each student's study so that it was relevant to them. "We like them to be excited about coming to school each day."

The next open morning at The McDonald College is on Thursday May. 5, 2022. Register via mcdonald.nsw.edu.au
