Congratulations once again to the boys in St Mary's who have been awarded another Science Foundation Ireland Discover Science and Maths Award for their work in 2016/17!!
Ní neart le cur le chéile!
To celebrate Science Week we had a visit from the National Reptile Zoo. Johnny introduced the boys to some fascinating reptiles including a corn snake, an anaconda, a tortoise and Rosie the Chilean tarantula!! The focus of the National Reptile Zoo is 'Conservation through Education' and it was a unique learning experience for the boys as a step in their Science Award.
It has been a busy term for the boys in St Mary's with plenty of preparation for the Science Foundation Ireland Discover Science & Maths Awards 2016/2017.
In order to obtain an Award the school must compilte a log of Evidence showing the different steps completed to obtain the science Award.
St Mary's was a hive of activity during Space week (3rd to 8th of October), Maths Week (15th to 23rd of October) and Science Week (13th to 20th of October).
St Mary's has achieved a Science Foundation Ireland Discover Science and Maths Plaque of STEM Excellence for the 2015/2016 academic year. The award is given for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths work carried out in the school during the academic year.
A great achievement!! Well done boys!!
