Report from Mr Hair
On Monday 24th June all S1 pupils were split into 20 groups and participated in the 2013 Mathematical Challenge. In the morning they were involved in activities which included, building a tower with straws and tape, attempting activities based on the TV program ‘The Cube’, moving paper cups without touching them, catchphrases, using the new ads in the school and trying to get as many pupils through a sheet of A4 paper! The record for the final activity was 20!
In the afternoon the teams ran a relay of maths questions in the Games Hall and to give them a rest they had some other quiet activities. The pupils thoroughly enjoyed the day and can be commended for their enthusiasm, teamwork and behaviour.
The challenge was won by Group 5 and the successful pupils were Emma Dolan, Nicole Clarkson, Sophie Bradley, Aidan Burke and Zak Docherty. Congratulations to all!
