On Friday 9th March, the Junior Maths team won the NI regional round of the UK Maths Trust’s annual team competition. The team consisted of Riya Raghuram (Form II), Kaitlyn Toal (Form II), Ben Golden (Form III) and Donal McGrath (Form III). They were selected earlier this term through a qualifying test in school and since then have been training to master the specific structure of the competition, learn how they work best together as a team and to polish their problem-solving skills. Twenty-three teams from across Northern Ireland were present, and the competition was, as ever, hard fought.
This is the fourth time the school has won this event and it cements B.R.A.’s position as a highly successful school in the competition. The team has been invited to London in June to represent NI at the national final.
