‘ Pi’ Day is food for thought
THE annual ‘Pi Day' at Loreto recently was as enjoyable an event as ever, with the Fifth Year students organising the events of the day and displaying their love of mathematics.
Events included a ‘Pi' baking competition which proved to be the highlight of the day. There were some amazingly inventive designs baked to represent the geometric radius of a circle and its circumference.
The number ‘Pi' is around 3.14, and for that reason Pi Day is held every year on March 14, with a celebration by the girls and their teachers of all things mathematical. There were also quizzes, posters, songs and more, all thanks to the dedication of the Fifth Year girls. Each activity was based around a maths theme, with the school as a whole flexing their intellectual muscles all day with sums, theorems and more presented in a fun way.
