Since opening our doors in 1982 to share a meal with the most vulnerable members of the community, we have evolved into an independent non-profit organisation renowned for effectively helping thousands of people experiencing homelessness to rebuild their lives. Here at the Mission, we see new personal strengths, achievements and optimism unfold for people every day. With someone in their corner, people who have faced extraordinary disadvantage and repeated episodes of trauma can find the courage to face the challenges in their life. We are in this for the long haul - we are committed to making a sustainable difference in people’s lives. We offer more than 20 programs and services, delivered in collaboration with a network of specialist, referral and service partners to provide wraparound support for our clients.

The competition has been in existence since 1972. It is wholly organised and run by a staff member of the School of Mathematics and Statistics at The University of Melbourne. The competition is of a demanding standard, designed to identify real mathematical talent. Between 3000 and 5000 students enter, and some 150 are awarded prizes.
The nature of the problems is different from that encountered in school mathematics syllabi, being less mechanical and requiring a higher level of mathematical insight and creativity. As such, participation is likely to be rewarding only to those students who have a real love for, and ability in, mathematics. The competition is separated into three divisions:
Junior Division - Students in years 7 and 8 sit a two hour exam
Intermediate Division - Students in years 9 and 10 sit a three hour exam
Senior Division - Students in years 11 and 12 sit a three hour exam
