Competition: How many digits of Pi can you remember?
March 14 is Pi (π) Day, the annual celebration of a never-ending number. It was founded by Physicist Larry Shaw in 1988 and to commemorate the Day we ran a competition to see who could recite the most digits of Pi by heart.
And the winner was .... Oliver who recited a staggering 52!
That would be:
3.1415926535 8979323846 2643383279 5028841971 6939937510 5

Do the Maths! Year 10 students Libby, Evie, Jess and Cali took up the Alton School Maths Challenge this week. Working with four future Eggar's students from Bentley School, they tackled three rounds of very difficult problem-solving maths. They were fantastic ambassadors https://t.co/onVvrb3qcJ 10:18 PM - 25 Jun 2022
It's Fri-YAY and we're celebrating Matt D and his performance at the National Schools Biathle last weekend. He was placed 2nd in the Year 7 Boys race.
