What is Pi Day?

Pi Day is an international mathematics event, that is celebrated by schools around the world every year on 14 March. The date is especially significant because the numbers 3.14 are the first three digits of the never-ending constant Pi (Greek letter p), which in mathematics is the symbol used to represent the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter!

“The main purpose of the event was to inspire students and show them that mathematics can be fun and cool! The house events also allowed students to work with other students in different classes and grade-levels, emphasising the school’s motto that we are a learning community aspiring to excellence.”

— Mr. Sam Jones

A range of activities were held across the school, including a competition to see who could recite the most digits of pi as well as fun activities that mixed physical education with maths. There was even the chance for students to ‘pie’ their teachers in the face with plates full of cream!
