Lismore – Official Guinness World Record Holders

Lismore recently received confirmation that their application to Guinness World Records was successful!

Lismore Comprehensive are officially the ‘Guinness World Record Title Holder’ for the ’World’s Largest Human Pi Symbol’.

Mrs Kane (Principal) commented,

“To see 1170 students and staff in a Pi shape, in our Senior Yard, is a memory that will be cherished for some time at Lismore!

Today's event was not just about breaking a World Record. It was about community. The Lismore community today involved our entire student population, including students from our Learning Support Centre, Teaching Staff, Learning Assistants, Canteen Staff, Office Staff and Caretaking staff - a whole team approach!”

Lismore’s Marketing and Communications Director added,

Special mention to our independent verifiers, Paul Duffy from Armagh City, Banbridge & Craigavon Borough Council, Naomi Breen from Diabetes UK and Tony Scullion from CCMS.

Thank you to our independent time keepers, Barry Shanks and Sean McGeown from FitZone.

Thank you to our own John Furphy (ICT Technician) and from J-TEC Solutions for supporting with photography and filming.

Thank you to Hugh Russell from the Irish News who supported with photographs.

As it is not possible to mention everyone, if you helped in any way it is all greatly appreciated.

Our students were amazing today - in every way from behaviour and in the dignity and courtesy they presented. #SuperProud

Finally, as a school community we remembered Maddy-Leigh Harbinson (RIP) in a special way, who passed away in February.

Maddy-Leigh and her family were in our prayers, thoughts and hearts as we attempted our World Record.
