The 2020 4th Year BA Mathematics and Symposium 

It is with great regret that the annual 4th Year BA Mathematics and Education Symposium had to be cancelled this year due to the current COVID-19 circumstances.

We would like to thank everyone who had already expressed an interest in attending and our Guest Speakers who had offered to present to what was going to be an excellent event (Lynne McClure, Cambridge Mathematics, Shane Flanagan JCT Mathematics, Brendan Doheny PDST Applied Mathematics).  Thank you also to Dr Cornelia Connolly for her help in organising the event. 

In preparation for the Symposium we had organised a Table Quiz in February and raised funds, from the quiz entry fee and raffle.  We wish to thank our friends and our lecturers who attended, participated and contributed prizes for the night. 

As our Symposium event is not happening this year and the funding for such is no longer pertinent - the class group decided to make a donation to Charity.  We decided on two very honourable charities close to our thoughts: The Olive Branch for Children and Barretstown

The Olive Branch for children helps remote communities in Tanzania assess their primary needs and establish programs that target the most vulnerable.  Two members from our class have spent some time there in Summer 2019

Barretstown is a serious fun camp in Kildare for sick children.  They offer completely free camps for children and their families living with a serious illness

Although the country, and indeed the world, is currently at a standstill due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus we thought about charities and needs in the world that are still in need of support. 

We are sad for the way our four years at NUI Galway ended yet very grateful for the memories and times had.
