Science Competition

As part of Science Week 2015, 5th and 6th class participated in the Mayo School Design Challenge held in conjunction with Mayo Science and Technology festival.

The challenge was to build the tallest free-standing structure, made out of 20 spaghetti sticks and a meter of masking tape. In addition, the structure must be capable of supporting a marshmallow. The time allowed was 40 minutes.

Two teams from 5th and 6th class entered the competition and we are delighted to announce that team 1 (Saibh, Gary and Stephen) won 1st place for the highest structure at 73cm tall!!

They each won a fantastic prize pack consisting of a drink bottle, a twenty five euro Easons voucher, a hoodie and a bag.

Well done to both teams for taking part!

New Library Books

4th, 5th and 6th class received a range of new and exciting titles to add to our wonderful library collection.

We are really excited about our new books and cannot wait to start reading them!


Science Week

To celebrate Science Week 2015, the Junior room participated in a range of experiments throughout the week.

We were excited to discover how water travels up the stem of plants, using food colouring and celery.

Using every day kitchen items, we were able to make a lava lamp! It was amazing!

We also have two on-going experiments which we are really excited about: ‘can we make the egg shell disappear?’ And ‘do seeds need light, water and soil to grow?’

We really enjoyed taking part in the experiments!
