The South African Physics Olympiad is run annually by the South African Institute of Physics (SAIP) for the top performing students in the National Science Olympiad. The exam focuses on pure physics and is set at a higher level than the Science Olympiad.


10 of the Bishops boys invited to write the exam, took up the challenge:
Angus Thring, Stuart Boynton, Nicholas Featherstone, Kwangbem Ko, Chris Aubin, Nicholas Bowden, Calvin Wehmeyer, Nivor Rajoo, Andrew Hodgson and Felix Burt.


Three of these boys;


Stuart Boynton
Nicholas Featherstone
Kwangbem Ko


…were all awarded Silver certificates (Honorable Mention) for coming in the top 50 across the country. Well done gentlemen!


We are also extremely proud to announce that...


Angus Thring


…scored the top mark in the exam (86%). This is a remarkable achievement in a very difficult exam!
For this, Angus was awarded first prize and a Gold medal.


The medal was presented to Angus in a small ceremony in the Principal’s office by Case Rijsdijk; the convener of the competition and Professor Patrick Woudt, president of The SAIPand head of the Astronomy department at the University of Cape Town.


These are all very impressive results and we congratulate all these boys on their outstanding achievements.
