Robotics Workshop

On Wednesday the 7th February Ms Halpin’s class took part in a Robotics Workshop. This initiative is funded and promoted by Analog Devices and delivered by Learnit. Learnit allows children to gain a deeper understanding of the STEM subjects in exciting and innovatve ways. Children became engineers, designers, analysts and programmers for a day. Piotr Hryniszak, Leon Tobin and Brian O Farrell will represent our school at the Limerick Final of the ADI Robotics Programme in Analog Devices. Well done boys!!

3rd Class LEAF Programme

In October, Ms. Fitzgerald's class were given acorn seeds to plant from Ray Foley, who works with An Taisce's LEAF programme. Ray came back to visit the boys today and was extremely impressed with how the oak trees were coming along. He gave us a talk about the native and non-native trees in Ireland and we learned why trees are so important to our environment. Ray also spoke to us about all the animals that can be found out in the Curraghchase Forest Park. We will be meeting Ray again in a couple of months out in Curraghchase to look at all the trees and animals out there. Before Ray left today we planted our own Hazel trees in our J.F.K Garden!
