Science week is an annual event which takes place every November(11th – 17th). The theme for Science week this year was Climate change. We celebrated Science week in our school with numerous events for students. Harry Potter potions experiments took place during lunch time on Monday and Tuesday. Transition year students held an experiment fair for first year students on Thursday.All second year students completed a Science Quiz based on 1st year material(14th November). This quiz was an enjoyable way for students to recap various parts of the science course that they completed in first year. Well done to the following students who came first: Merlin Binu, Hezamary Paul, Jesna Joby and Ann Joshua. Well done to the following students who came second: Aoife Duffy, Sarah Fitzgerald, Milana Plinta and Destiny Godfrey. Well done to the following students who came third: Becky McCloskey, Deirbhile Scott, Shauna Kirwan Kelly and Sadhbh Beirne.
