A special thanks to Miss Lees who helped some of our maths superstars get challenge ready.
A team of our pupils took part in the National Finals of the Maths Challenge Competition yesterday in the Glasgow Science Centre.This is the first time we have made it to the finals, having come third in the North Lanarkshire heat. There were 56 schools from all over the country who had won their regional heats.The day consisted of a range of mathematical challenges but also included an hour to explore the Science Centre as it was closed to the public.
The pupils had a great day and finished 32nd ,which with 397 secondary schools in Scotland makes them in the top 10% in the country. The team consisted of Sophie Tougher-Mitchell, Owen Leach and Lewis Donnelly from S4 and Magen McNulty and Michael McKenna of S3. Congratulations go to them for a great performance both yesterday and in the heats .
