CensusAtSchool 15 (2015/2016) Priontáil

GPO RisingAs we enter the centenary year of the 1916 Easter Rising we have decided to include a few questions for the 2015/16 Questionnaire on history. Have you ever visited a historical site relating to Irish events for the period 1912-1922? Can you identify some of the signatories of the Proclamation of Independence? But we’re not completely confined to the past as we also have questions about social media usage and sport.  So lots of potential to collect and examine class data on the past and the present.

In Rio de Janeiro, Brazil at the 60th International Statistics Institute World Statistics Congress 2015, Rachael Ni Dhonnachadha and Shannon Ni Dhonnachadha, two Irish maths students from St. Vincent’s Secondary School, Dundalk, were placed first in the world in the senior category of an international poster competition. Their poster “Road to Rio - Protecting Our Olympic Boxing Future” was judged the best in the world in the poster competition run by the International Association of Statistical Education (IASE) in collaboration with the International Statistical Literacy Project (ISLP). The poster competition attracted over 8,145 entries from across six continents, with strong competition coming from countries including Japan, Russia, Korea, Mexico, Australia, Kenya, India, many other EU member states and South Africa. This poster has already won the Irish John Hooper Medal for Statistics poster competition, garnering them both the beautifully engraved sterling silver John Hooper Medal as well as a total of €1,600 in prize money, €1,000 of which is awarded to the school and €600 to the students themselves.
