Mar 15 - David Thomas Visits Loreto Convent School

David Thomas visited Loreto Convent School this week to discuss memory skills with students.

David talked to the children at Loreto Convent School about how visualising things can help with remembering them, using colour, images, and different senses when learning. 

A spokesperson said: "In 1998 David managed to recite Pi to 22 500 digits, an incredible feat! David showed us some of his skills by reciting Pi to the first 150 digits. He has since gone on to bigger and better things and even managed to recall 100 packs of individually shuffled cards! Over the last 20 years, David has spoken in over 20 different countries, written a best-selling book and appeared on a number of radio and tv programmes, including Oprah.

 

"He challenged the children to remember 20 objects as he went around the room, describing them in certain places and what they were. Everyone was encouraged to recall them up to a point with some success. He asked for a volunteer to recall all 20 items in front of everyone and the room went quiet! The pupil volunteers were successful in their recall of all 20 items, one managing this in reverse.

"He went on to explain that in life it pays to put yourself forward, have a go, be willing to try, to stand out from the crowd and put yourself in situations which are outside your comfort zone – something to really think about and take away. David’s speech was not only inspiring but motivating too, teaching us that whatever your background may be, if you are willing to put in the work you can really go far and succeed in life. The memory techniques he introduced can certainly be used by the pupils to enhance their studying techniques."
