The PMWC aims to enhance the interests of primary level students in mathematics and also serve as a venue for academic and cultural exchange for the students of participating countries.

In the team contest, all the three mentioned awardees were joined by Juan Rafael Landicho of Stonyhurst Southville International School. The PH team earned a Merit Award.

“I felt a sign of bronze or silver medal in my head,”  Paredes Dy said, who was able to correctly answer 13 of the 15 questions.

The PH Team also included Rovi Gabriel Dela Cruz of Pasig Catholic College, Theodore Abara of La Salle Greenhills, Rovi Gabriel Dela Cruz of Pasig Catholic College, Armea Helena Sien Dimayacyac of Notre Dame of Greater Manila and John David Magnaye of Holy Rosary Academy of Las Pinas City.
