Our annual Pi Day was held on Monday 14. It is an enormously popular event each year with Fifth Year students organising the events of the day and showing their love of Mathematics. A 'Pi' baking competition proved to be the highlight of the day with some amazingly inventive designs to represent the geometric relationship between the radius of a circle and its circumference.
On Monday evening the yearly Dublin Schools' Quiz was held in St. Michael’s College, Ballsbridge. Two Loreto, Bray teams represented the school from Fifth Year and Sixth Year. It was great fun with the whole evening conducted in Spanish and questions based on knowledge of the Hispanic world covering Music, Geography, Famous People, Famous Monuments, History, Fiestas etc. Spanish ‘Tapas’ were served at the interval.
Tuesday was the day chosen for the Trocaire fast this year when many students do a voluntary sponsored fast for the day to collect money for Trocaire. This year's appeal will help the poor of the world in such places as Honduras. To keep their minds off food during lunch hour a table quiz took place in the school hall for all those taking part in the fast.
