Each country selects “ambassadors” from the year before and our South African ambassadors this year are Amy Coningsby, a Grade 6 learner from Brescia House, and an 8-year-old named Zeyn Mahomed from St Johns. These two ambassadors were among the top performers in last year’s South African Maths Challenge. They are extremely enthusiastic about their role in the 2013 World Education Games and learners can keep up to date with their activities via the navigation section e on the website entitled ‘Ambassadors’.. http://www.worldeducationgames.com/WEG2013/Ambassadors
