Science Blast 2019
The Senior Room took on the Science Blast challenge and took on a scientific investigation to answer a question that was puzzling them. They wanted to figure out why exactly the older part of the school was so much colder than the newer extension. They hypothesised possible solutions, undertook investigations and came up with results and conclusion that were all presented in May at the Science Blast exhibition in Mary Immaculate College, Limerick. It was a tremendous event to be involved in and we will be back again in the future!!
In 2018, we took part in the Junior Entrepreneur Programme. The pupils came up with their own business proposals, met local entrepreneurs, decided on a product and, ultimately, created their own business. The business involved the creation, marketing and selling of their chosen product, Room Signs. These wonderfully designed signs were a great success. The pupils really enjoyed the whole process of the JEP programme and learnt a great deal from the process.
