Donegal school is tops in maths 24.02.14

STUDENTS from Cloughfin National School in Lifford are currently Ulster’s best placed school and third nationally in a new All-Ireland maths competition.
The Donegal primary pupils are among the early pace setters in the MATHletes Challenge 2014.
However, Galway students and teachers are leading the country in sign-ups for the challenge. The brainchild of Sean O’Sullivan, the event is supported by the Department of Education and Skills and national education centres across the country.
"There is a real sense of momentum behind the competition, with thousands more students expected to sign up over the coming weeks," he said.
Some €20,000 in prizes and the title of MATHletes Challenge Champion 2014 are up for grabs.
MATHletes will see students in each county competing online and face-to-face in county and provincial finals, with top scorers advancing to the national finals, which are scheduled to take place in early May. For more, see www.mathletes.ie .
