Pi Day Challenge

On Friday 13 March, International Pi Day was celebrated with students from all year levels battling it out to see who could recite the most digits of the never-ending number. It was awesome seeing students giving it a red hot crack and trying their best, whether it was for a bit of fun or to challenge themselves. For me, it was both as I not only enjoy these competitions but wanted to give myself the challenge of beating my previous record. And beat it I did, making all the practice at home pay off. On the day it wasn’t easy, with a few trip-ups here and there, but with my peers and teachers watching from the sides, I was able to get through it.
