Maths Week 2015
We had a great week taking part with the national maths week 2015 campaign. Classes took a little more time to look at maths in a fun way. Mr. Cunningham also set the senior classes up for registration with the math online game programme MANGAHIGH. I hope your students enjoyed taking part in the Mangahigh Maths Week Challenge. The engagement generated has been exceptional, with over 22,000 students from 472 schools across Ireland answering over 7,500,000 maths questions!
The school came in 82nd place overall in Ireland. This was despite a lot of the computers in the computer room being slow / not working due to their age. The BOM / PA hope to target this area for support during this school year.Many thanks to Mr. Cunningham and the boys for the great effort and we hope you enjoyed the week. Prizes will be given out to the top 5 performers on Friday.
