On Friday a team of four pupils from OLHS were second in the Maths competition for schools in North Lanarkshire. There were 23 teams entered in the competition and the team consisting of Magen McNulty, Michael McKenna, Niamh Simmonette and Rhodri Bevan put in an excellent performance to finish second.
Each team participated in four rounds:
- build as long a bridge as possible using spaghetti and sellotape
- answer a variety of maths questions within a time limit
- problem solving
- maths relay race.
Our Lady’s, along with competition winners, Coltness High School, will now progress to the national finals, which will be held at the Glasgow Science Centre in November.
