Thomas Valentine is a school dyke for 2018, and his twin, Villiam, is a proxy approach, or another.
Everyone made a "great job" of success of 18 years, but we did not know we would get it – I told myself it does not matter, "said William.
Tomas said that the possibility of their double success in mind throughout the year.
Finally achieving it, it was a "big deal".
They managed to get hard work.
"We put a lot of effort into learning, it depends on the time of the year, but spend 10 hours a day at school. Do not always learn – it also works on tasks," said William.
"There is a lot of competition between us."
"But that's not negative competition," Thomas said.
"We are not discussing."
"If I fight, Tomas helps me. It's always been so," said William.
"At school, we end up with a lot of help with our schoolwork," Thomas said.
Nick McIvor, a vocabulary of the Timaru Bois Gymnasium, said that the boy's achievement is extremely rare, which makes him even more special.
"The staff who have taught and supported them over the past five years are very proud of how far they are coming-as well as their family."
The twin topics included physics, digital technology and graphics – Villiam worked on chemistry – but their popularity was mathematics.
Both completed university courses in mathematics.
& # 39; To [maths] It has always been the main thing of primary school. We always wanted to be good at it, "said William.
When asked why they were so interested in mathematics, Tomas said it was a logic "and you do not have to write a lot."
However, these are not all endless hours.
The twins play in the school band – Villiam on the trombone and Thomas on the clarinet – and they compete in the athletics.
From the age of eight, they were members of the South Canterbury Athletic Club and competed at Colgate Games when they were younger.
Coach is Ian Baird, who in the early years was led by world champion Tom Vals, Timar Boys high school boy, and many others.
Thomas is the third time at the National National High School in New Zealand's high schools, which will compete later this month at the Dunedin Championship. Last year, Williams became the fifth in the discussion and hopes to achieve a similar placement this year.
Their parents, Robin, an emergency administrator, and Peter Valentine, a traffic policeman at Mackenzie and South Kanterbury, are thrilled. & # 39; & # 39; Nobody knows. They are very good guys and they worked hard, "said Mrs. Valentine.
& # 39; & # 39; They study either athletics. Hours and hours of study. They do not go to parties. "Mrs. Valentine said she was glad that the guys went to high school Timaru Bois.
"We chose Bois High to get into an accelerated class of mathematics."
Valentine's daughter, Sophie, is 11 years old at the "Girls in Timber" high school.
"Sofia is quite smart, although she does not like mathematics like Thomas."
Ms. Valentine said she was looking forward to seeing where the twins' career would lead them. The next year will be a big adjustment when Villiam will go to the Kenterberian University of Computer Science and Mathematics, while Thomas is referring to the University of Auckland to study mathematics. "Maybe it's good," said William.
It's hard to say. & # 39; & # 39; & # 39; & # 39; & # 39; & # 39;
Both of them were unclear in what direction they would need their career after completing their studies.
& # 39; & # 39; There are many options. I expect that I can get a job to write code, "said William Thomas, who said he would definitely continue his postgraduate studies and perhaps follow the mathematical research. As for Mrs. Valentine, she said that the twins would miss, but" washing and food [preparation] I will not miss it. "
