World Pi Day 2019

Record Breaking Day for WSFG Students

Pi Day is always a special day in the mathematical calendar but this year will be particularly memorable due to a fantastic new WSFG record being set.

During lunchtime in the LRC we held a Pi Recitation competition. 

Congratulations to everyone who took part and thank you to Year 7 student, Stella who filmed the event.

The WSFG winner was Iqra 7S, who recited pi to a phenomenal 552 decimal places! She achieved this by breaking pi down into bite sized chunks, and memorising an extra 4 digits/day.

In second place was Isra 7S who achieved 202dp, closely followed by Aaminah 7F who achieved 201dp.

Pi Day is always a fantastic opportunity for the girls to exercise their brains, research and  practise various memory techniques and to experience the effect of having a GROWTH Mindset. With effort and  practice, anything is possible.

Pi themed cakes and biscuits were also eaten, and beautiful Piscapes were created which illustrate the connection between maths and art.
