10th Inter-School Sudoku Challenge!

Our Objectives: 
To promote logical thinking and problem solving 
To promote Sudoku as a puzzle for recreational purpose.
To develop the values of teamwork and determination in students

This year, Broadrick hosted our annual Inter-School Sudoku Challenge for the 10th year running. A total of 47 schools, 14 Primary and 33 Secondary schools took part in the challenge. 

188 students from all over the island came together to pit their logical thinking skills against one another over 2 intense rounds of puzzle solving. At the same time, teachers from 16 different schools competed against each other in the Teacher’s Sudoku challenge that ran concurrently.

Eager students & teachers

Before the winners were announced, the participants had the privilege of having Professor Tan Eng Chye, Deputy President (Academic Affairs) & Provost of the National University of Singapore, to deliver closing address.

Professor Tan talked about how a love of problem solving in his youth sparked a competitive spirit within him and his classmates, which eventually that led him to pursue a career in mathematics. He then went to talk about the origins of Sudoku and how they fall into a class of problems known as “Latin Squares Puzzles“, which were studied extensively in the 18th century by mathematicians.

After the scores were tabulated, Broadrick managed to clinch 2nd runner up for the Secondary Category, our total score being surpassed only by Dunman High and Anglican High, who won 1st runner up and Champion respectively.
