A Feast of Maths takes place at Xaverian College
Thursday 7th May 2020
This fully booked Year 10 event was one of three held in Manchester at the beginning of March.
The Maths Feast is an annual maths competition, where teams of four Year 10 students take part in a series of fun rounds, with the main focus on enjoyment. This was only the second Maths Feast to take place at Xaverian College and the event was fully booked. This was the third Feast to take place in Manchester at the beginning of March, with the other two taking place at the University of Manchester.
Not only was the event fully booked, there was also 100% attendance on the day. This was a wonderful effort from all involved, especially given recent circumstances. The students tackled a variety of rounds, including a relay and a maths merry-go-round. All teams displayed excellent teamwork and enthusiasm throughout the day, and the teachers did an excellent job of marking. A special congratulations to Cardinal Langley RC High School, who achieved the highest overall score on the day.
