From the Elementary Department are third graders Francis Roy Albina, Jose Miguel Antonio I and Jose Marco Antonio II, and fifth grader Micah Edem; and from high school is Anchelle Grace Ho, third year.
They were first selected from the Mathematics Training Guild provincial screening and were among the top five on the provincial screening.
They underwent further screening under the Young Mathematicians In-House Intensive Training Program and emerged in the top 15 per cent.
Albina, Antonio I, Antonio II and Edem will compete in Hong Kong on July 23 to 27, and Ho, on July 30 to August 1.
