This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the International Olympiad in Astronomy and Astrophysics was canceled, but in order for students who passed the national selections to still participate in the world-class competition, the IOAA International Council decided to organize an online GeCAA competition.
279 students from 38 countries participated in the Olympics. The students of the Gymnasium have already achieved significant successes at the Olympics in astrophysics and astronomy, and the public still remembers the medals brought from this competition by the brothers Bogdan and Novak Stanojević. International competitions mean a lot to awarded students. It is a reward for the effort and work invested and motivation to continue and encourage younger friends. Judging by the current successes of the students of this high school, the former “Olympians”, medal winners, got their successors. (D. Vidojkovic)
