b'A STAR IN THE MAKINGIn October I went down to London for an event called Sprint with the Stars which was held at the London Aquatics Centre. This was also one of the locations for the 2012 Olympics and was incredible!I raced against the World Champions for the 50m Breaststroke and the 50m Freestyle. We were given a five-second start over the champions to give us at least the possibility of winning and I came first, beating Adam Peaty! A TV interview and photo opportunity followed and it was a fantastic day!I hope that I can become a major champion myself one day.Kaiden Hitchins 8HMATHLETE Sir David Cox (1924-2022)Sir David Roxbee Cox, FBA, FRSE, FRSCa noted British statistician and former pupil of this school. His legacy is remarkable and was marked by a celebration of 50 years of the Cox Model after his death. His most important work is noted as one of the most highly cited papers and has informed a wider range of research applications. His importance to the world of Maths and Science is without question.Cox studied at the University of Leeds and taught at St Johns College, Cambridge after working for the RAF and the Wool Industries Research Association. Cox wrote over 350 papers and 20 books during his time at Cambridge, and later Princeton. His students have gone on to also make notable contributions to their fields of study, which is certainly a testament to the impact he had. The Mathematical Society, in their obituary, described him as a wise and noble statistician. In this time of coronation, he certainly deserves a crown.Its quite incredible, and inspiring, to think thatfor studying the subject to the very an internationally renowned Cambridge mathshighest levels like Sir David did. professor sat in the very same classroomsShould you develop the same thirst as you do today. But thats exactly whatand have the same determination Sir David Cox did at the beginning of anhe had, going to Cambridge, illustrious academic career. Among the manystudying a field within mathematics things worthy of note about this great man isand becoming an academic are all the range of interests he had. Before settlingpossible. He was just like you!on his lifetimes work in statistics, he dabbledG. Dhillowin important mathematics in physics and other applied areas. This in turn led him to see the power of statistics wherever mathematics was used to solve real-world problems.His first, and perhaps most pivotal, book Theory of Probability stands the test of time and very much builds on the same ideas you learn in school today (a Bayesian view of probability). The message I would like students of HGS to take from this old boy is that the maths education you receive here right now will equip you 58'
