Maths Mastery


On Tuesday November 24th, 4 Sixth Class boys took part in the

Inter-Schools Maths Quiz

hosted by; St. Attracta’s Senior National School, Ballinteer.

In all 17 schools took part.  It started at 6.30pm and ended at 9.15pm.  The children had to work out 36 Maths Problems.  These were by Secondary Teachers.  Indeed, many of the questions were very difficult.  One was from a leaving cert paper.

Ballyroan got 33 questions right and were pipped for 1st place in the last round.  We came second, that one question divided us from the winners!

The team consisted of

  1. Morgan Whelan (Captain)                                                 
  2. Ross Farrell
  3. Cillian West
  4. Dylan McBrien

We had 4 other boys who were also excellent at maths but unfortunately, we could only send one team!

Well done to all 8 boys who studied hard covering the whole 6th class programme and more!

It was a pleasure to work with them.
