To celebrate International Pi Day (March 14), the school formed the longest human chain of Pi digits with 1,182 participants, the school stated. This was more than double the previous world record.
Dr Glenn Canterford, principal, The Sultan’s School stated that he was delighted that the record had been recognised by Guinness World Records. He also said that the original idea of trying to break the record had been proposed by two of the school’s IB students, who then did the majority of the administration, assisted by the Head of Secondary, in preparing for the record attempt.
The 1,182 participants consisted of primary and secondary students, teachers, support staff and parents. Representatives from the Council of International Schools were also in attendance to ensure the school met all the necessary criteria provided by Guinness World Records.
