ESB Science Blast 2020

Mrs kennedy's class took part in this year's ESB Science Blast Exhibition in the RDS. The pupils investigated 

' Are finger prints inherited?' They received an excellent report stating that the pupils had looked at the question from many different angles. They looked at their own finger prints, those of their siblings, those of their parents and they investigated the fingerprints of 2 sets of twins , one set were identical twins and other were non- identical twins. They discovered that fingerprints within a family have similarities hence some aspects are inherited. 

Congratulations to the class. Thank you to Mrs Kennedy.

Catholic Schools Week and Grandparents Day 2020

We had a busy week celebrating catholic schools week . We talked about living in harmony as God's creation. The pupils learned about how important it is to love ourselves, love our neighbour and take care of our environment. The highlight of the week was Grandparents' Day . There was a lovely atmosphere. The Grandparents read stories, answered lots of questions, told the pupils about school in the past and listened to the pupils sing.
