We have set up a WAJO participants list. You may subscribe for your school by entering your details at here.

The WAJO participants list is a moderated list to eliminate spamming. Its intended use is to disseminate announcements directly to Heads of School Mathematics Departments (in particular) or others who will be interested in or involved in the organising of school teams for the WA Junior Maths Olympiad. It is expected that email to this list will be limited to the couple of months before each olympiad.
