The Student Council’s Rap ‘n’ Maths competition took place from the 21th – 24th of October. All of the maths classes were preparing weeks before the competition and great creativity was shown by all. On Tuesday 1st Years and 2nd Years took the spotlight giving us very entertaining versions of many of the latest songs. On Wednesday the 3rd Years battled it out, followed by transition years and 5th years facing off on Friday. Thank you to all of the judges, Ms.Blessington, Ms. Walsh, Ms.Kenny and Courtney Donohoe(6th Year) who had a tough job choosing the winners. The raps sampled everyone from Taylor Swift and Niki Minaj to Abba and Hannah Montana. Each class incorporated many maths terms with the good old ‘X and Y’ featuring strongly in many entries. Aside from everyone having a great time, the Rap ‘n’ Maths competition raised an amazing €500.70 for charity. Pictured below is St. Mogues class, first year, having fun at competition. We love the socks girls! By Kate Brady, TY Student.
