Vex Robotics 2020

A huge well done to our Vex Team from Sixth Class- Mackenziel, Dylan, Micheál, Tom, Matthew and Terry who  successfully competed in the fantastic Vex Competition in Carlow IT. There were many schools from Carlow and neighbouring counties also competing on the day and our boys did themselves and their school very proud.

Many months of work had gone into the building and programming of the robot and a special mention has to go to the boys who gave up many break times to work so hard on this project.

The day itself was a huge success. After initial teething problems with our robot we competed well throughout. A special thank  you to Deirdre, one of our parents, for all her help on the day especially when we needed it most.

We were so thrilled to come away with a trophy, having come in third place in the STEAM Art competition- a whole class effort.

Congrats to all involved!!


Science Blast 2020

On Wednesday 4th March the boys and girls in 4th and 6th classes travelled to the RDS in Dublin to present their science projects along with many many other schools from around the country. There was an early start but it was more than worth it as we all enjoyed a fun, educational, action packed day. Great memories were made. Well done to all the boys and girls.

This year’s projects were “Does Advertising affect our food choices” and ” The Science of Sugar and Sweets”
