Notre Dame Churchtown, Republic of Ireland – Irish maths week

Irish Maths week took place this year between the 13th and 21st of October, and included a week long Mangahigh competition.  Many schools from the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland took part in the competition.  Below are some thoughts on Irish Maths week from the fourth place finisher, Notre Dame Churchtown.

Mangahigh was really the highlight of the week for our school.  We entered last year and came in 22nd place but really pushed ourselves this year to try and win it.  We had a big presentation on the Friday in the hall with the whole school, which culminated with the announcement of our Mangahigh winners. I don’t think I’ve ever seen them so hyped up about anything before.   It really inspired a great sense of competition, achievement and school spirit.  I think coming in 4th really energised the whole school and hopefully now this will spill over into the maths curriculum as well as other subjects.
