Yep Schools Direct were priviledged to play a part in potentially creating new history at Manningtree High on Tuesday 14th March 2016.
Months ago, the maths department at Manningtree High School were discussing ways they could celebrate world pi day (held on March 14th every year), by doing something a little unusual and memorable for the students. They were delighted that Guinness World Records accepted their application for ‘the world’s longest human representation of the digits of pi’. To break the world record they needed to have at least 250 participants; so as this was a pi world record they decided to attempt it with 314 students. This was a historic day for the school, as they’ve never had anything like this happen in the past.
Students from Years 7, 8 & 9 with the best effort and attitude towards their learning were lucky enough to be selected and the Rotary Club of Manningtree Stour Valley kindly volunteered 9 people to help steward and oversee the event. Hopefully, when all the evidence is submitted and verified, Guinness World Records will confirm that they have been successful. Not many people can say they’re a world record holder, but it’s something that many of their students will now be able to boast!
Yep feel honoured to have been invited to photograph the exciting event and our team are all very excited to hear the results..
