Soroban education was introduced to the Kingdom in the 1970’s, and has been proven by Tonga’s Ministry of Education and Training to have strengthened the mathematical skills of primary students.

The Embassy of Japan in Nuku‘alofa and the Ministry of Education and Training have co-hosted the Soroban Competition since 2010.

Young soroban students from Tonga who won the written category in previous National Competition have been invited to join a soroban summer camp in Japan, hosted by Japan International Soroban Diffusion Foundation. 

The 2017 Soroban Competition began with the competition for Ha’apai Islands in July, before the competition in Vava’u last week.

307 students in the Vava’u Soroban Competition held at the Maamamo’onia Hall, Mailefihi Siu’ilikutapu College on Thursday, 3 August 2017.

The three districts of Tongatapu will have their competitions on the 15, 17 and 24 of August, and the soroban student in ‘Eua will have their competition in September.

The Soroban Competitions is supported annually by the Tonga Soroban Education Association, JICA Tonga Office, and Japan International Soroban Diffusion Foundation.
