Science Week

  • Science Week

    The pictures we have included in our Science Week collage give just a flavour of some of the activities that were enjoyed by the girls here during Science Week.

Last week was Science Week and it was certainly packed with lots of fun activities and inquistive budding young scientists!

Activities included:

- Chemistry demonstration for some 1st and 2nd years by John Daly (accounts below will show just how much the students enjoyed this experience!)
- A trip to the zoo for a Genetics lecture for 6th years from 6B
- Two teams of 6th years competed at the annual Irish Science Teachers Association science quiz. Well done to those students involved - Zara Khan, Niamh McAdam, Ita McGennis, Niamh Kyne, Hayley Briody and Aoife Corcoran.
- A fun science workshop on Friday where the highlight was the huge flames that Ms Campbell lit in Ms Kerr's hands!
- There were daily puzzles which attracted great interest. Winners were Tamsin Carolan, Aoibheann Dillon-Kelly, Ruth McMonagle, Eleanor Cripwell and Maeve Given.

- The first year poster competition had a very high standard of entries. Winners, which were very difficult to select, were Meabh Egan, Meabh Fleming, Freya Daughton and Emily Plant. Their posters can be seen in the collage.
- And  finally, there were many more fun activities throughout science classes during the week.
