quiz winnersYet again maths mania hits the Bower in celebration of Maths Week 2017 despite being curtailed to three days by storm Ophelia. The first years were busy with their Mangahigh challenges in advance of their mathematical table quiz which took place on Friday.

The winners were Sally O’Hara, Emma Gallagher, Lucy Delaney and Erika Lowe while Rebecca Coffey, Katie Broderick, Grace Creaton Doheny and Aine McGlynn were second.

Meanwhile, there was stiff competition for the canteen vouchers on offer as prizes for the winners of theprism daily puzzle posted on the screen in the central area.

The NUIG Prism maths competition was held on Thursday after school and had a record turnout of almost forty.

There were separate junior and senior sections so all maths enthusiasts were motivated to attend.

Top scorers in the senior section were Lauryn Blair and Kate Duffy while Ashling McCarthy and Isabel Costello were top juniors.

The Mangahigh Challenge was ongoing all week so students logged on at home and completed the challenges set by their teacher.

Clare Reidy, Ebunoluwa Jamgbadi and Gráinne Behan were the top performers all week.
