On Friday 25th of January two teams of four Leaving Cert students from Lucan Community College competed in the Dublin region round of the annual Team Math competition in Rathdown School, Glenageary.
This competition has been run by the Irish Maths Teacher’s Association since 1991. This year 48 teams from many different schools in Dublin and the wider area participated.
The competition is composed of 8 rounds of challenging questions based on the Leaving Cert higher level course.
We have competed in this competition for many years but this year is the first year we have been victorious.
We are so proud of our senior Maths A team of Alex Hanley, Luke Neville, Oisίn O’Sullivan and Petra O’Connor.
The team held off serious competition from the other schools including Sandford Park, Gonzaga College, Confey Community College, St. Gerard’s, Bray, St. Wolston’s, Celbridge amongst others and in doing so won the Dublin region competition outright.
The victorious Lucan CC team now progress to the national finals in Maynooth on Saturday 2nd of March. Well done also to our second team of Kevin Wang, Killian Lyons, Przemek Majda and Rίan Porter who performed brilliantly too.
