    • Pi Day

      Published 19/03/19

      March 14th, Year 7 students took part in activities to mark Pi Day.

      Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in Mathematics to represent the ratio of the circumference of a circular object to its diameter.   The Pi Day activities enriched and deepened students' understanding of the concept of Pi.

      Some students had the following to say about Pi Day:

      "Pi Day was fun-filled day where through investigations we got to learn lots about the pi digits. We measured circumference and diameter of circles and different real life objects like bicycle wheel and a wok. We then divided the circumference of the circle by the diameter .  Our group managed to get 3.13. Pi Day was enjoyable I’d definitely do it again!"

      “I’ve learnt that google has added another 9million digits to the Pi number this afternoon. I like Pi,  lots of numbers”.

      “My favourite part was finding Pi and eating pie”.

    • Austria Ski Trip 2019

      Published 14/03/19

      The ski trip was a great experience and I would definitely go again.  Before the letter came out to go on the ski trip I already knew that I wanted to go.  My friends and I all booked together so I knew I wouldn’t be on my own.  Everyday on the slopes I felt like I had improved from the day before.  Most students on the trip had never put on a pair of skis, but by the end of the week they were so confident they could have been skiing their whole lives!  I really enjoyed the trip because there was a good balance between fun and focus.  I had a lot of fun on the slopes with my friends but I also progressed with my skiing ability.  The evening activities were also very entertaining and there was something to do each night.  The activities included bowling, swimming, awards night and many more.  I would definitely recommend going on the ski trip as it is a great opportunity as well as a new experience.
