Maths Week

Maths Week began on October 10th this year and there was some activity in Glenstal Abbey School to celebrate the week.

All students from 1st to 4th year were given access to Mangahigh which is a website with Maths games, challenges and activities.

Access to the web resource is granted to all schools during Maths week and we hope we can maintain some limited access to Mangahigh afterward also.

The students find the website enjoyable and it’s an innovative way to practice their mathematics.

On Friday evening, the 1st years gathered in the Gallery for their quiz night. There were four rounds of challenging maths problems, brain teasers and puzzles to be solved. The winning team comprised of James Hales, Joe Gilbride, Dan Hyde and Ben Gambs. They scored a very impressive 25 points out of a possible 31 points. Congratulations to all the boys who participated in the quiz and celebrated Maths Week in such good spirit. A special word of thanks to Ms. Mairead O’Sullivan who helped in correcting and conducting the quiz evening.
