Science Fair in Cork City Hall

A group of 25 children from 3rd to 6th class, Mr. O’Leary, and two parents (Noreen Healy and Jean Humphreys) headed off in a bus on 17th November to attend Discovery 2014 in Cork City Hall.  There were a number of stands on display to include Lifetime Lab, Learn it Lego, CIT/Blackrock Castle Observatory, CIT, UCC, Defence Forces, Tundall National Institute, Engineers Ireland, Trend Micro and Alimentary Pharmabiotic Centre.  Discovery is a main partner in Science Week Ireland and one of the biggest events in the Irish science calendar.

The children attended the Cork Electronics Industry Association Workshop where they spend a half an hour putting circuits together – some had voice recordings, lights, music, etc.  It was very good practical, hands-on experience for them and they had great fun assembling them.

A highlight for them was the popcorn they got after they watched a video on being safe on the internet.

It was a lovely event to attend and the children were a credit to the school.

Halloween Party

As usual the Parents Association organised a Halloween Party in the School Hall.  It was held on Friday 24th October and all the kids in the school dressed up.  There were a variety of costumes from scary, cute to original!  The DJ was great and there was lots of dancing done, with some of the parents even joining in!  Spot prizes were given out and of course there was a goody bag for everyone at the end of the night.
