The International Mathematics and Science Olympiad (IMSO) is an annual competition in Math and Science for primary school students. Since 2011, NUS High School has been appointed by the Gifted Education Branch (GEB), MOE to be the Lead Agency for IMSO, to select and train the IMSO national team.
From my understanding, students in the IMSO national team are typically offered Confirmed Offers from NUS High School under the Direct School Admission (DSA) exercise; they may even be awarded the 6-year NUS High scholarship if they choose to enrol in NUS High School from Secondary 1.
The Singapore team for the 11th IMSO comprises the following Primary 5 students. They are selected from the top 20 NMOS and SPSO winners, have undergone further training by NUS High and have done well in the respective selection tests.

Last week, Lim Li received $30 Capitavoucher for her SMO (Senior) prize. I used $20 Capitavoucher to buy the following slushy maker (it costs S$19.90) from Bugis BHG.
It is easy to make Ribena slurpee.
1. Place the slushy maker into the freezer until it is frozen (about 8 hrs, or overnight)
2. Pour in Ribena (or any chilled drink)
3. Put on the lid and squeeze, squeeze, squeeze! In less than a minute, you will have Ribena slurpee.
