After a week of maths the 6th classes, Ms. Bleahene and Mr. Brennan, win the Target Board challenge beating every other school in Ireland. Ms Molloy’s 4th class, after a late start came in 5th overall in Ireland. The boys worked really hard and the success of the weeks maths could be summarised in the one overheard comment ‘I never knew that maths could be so much fun’
