The Irish Junior Maths Competition

Maths-CompetitionThe Irish Junior Maths Competition has been held for First Year students around the country since 1994. It is organised by the Irish Maths Teacher Association (IMTA) and consists of a school round where multiple-choice brain teasers are answered within a forty minute period. Based on these results, students can be invited to a regional final.

First Year students at St. Nathy’s College took part in the first round on March 4th2015. Four students were invited to the regional stages in Carrick-on-Shannon on May 8th 2015. These students, in order of merit, were David Cafferky, Fintan Roddy, Jack Freeman and Matthew Coyle.

They completed a one-hour common test against other schools in the region.

All students received certificates and pens to mark their great achievement and David Cafferky did the school proud by taking home the 3rd place trophy! Well done to him, and to all First Year students who took part in the competition!
