We are delighted to announce that our school has achieved a Science Foundation Ireland Discover Science and Maths Award! Over the past number of weeks every class in the school has been busy working on various projects and on the 21st March we held a Science Fair in the hall for all classes. There were some fantastic experiments and projects on show and it was a really enjoyable afternooon. Well done to all students for their hard work, enthusiasm and great ideas. Huge thanks to Mrs Roche for co-ordinating our application. We should receive our plaque in the next few weeks.
14 girls were selected from schools around Carlow to play in the Allianz Cumann na mBunscoil Laighean Ladies Football Blitz in St. Patrick’s College Drumcondra. Brónagh Nolan (6th Class) was selected from our school. The girls played brilliantly putting in some excellent performances throughout the and busy morning. They beat West-Meath 3.02-0.02, Dublin 3.05-2.02 and Louth 3.08-0.02 to top their group and qualify for the Division 1 Final. They lost to a very strong Meath team but acquitted themsevles very well and gained valuable playing experiences along the way. Huge congratulations and well done to all involved.
We are very proud of Brónagh!
