Numeracy Day – Lingfield Park Racecourse
45 students from The Winston Churchill, Ash Manor Schools and Collingwood College were busy yesterday at Lingfield Park, seeing how maths is used in the real world. In this case, a racecourse on a raceday. Ex-jockey Olly McPhail showed them the weighing room, parade ring and jumps, as well as entertaining them with stories from when he raced.
