Science Week

Last week was "Science Week".  Many experiments and tasks were undertaken by the children.  On Friday, we had a visit from Mr. Leo Smith, Science teacher in Athlone Community College.  Mr. Smith and one of the students carried out a number of experiments for the children in Ms. Gaynor's, Ms. Mc Ardle's and Ms. Dervin's.  For photos from last week, click HERE   (activities in Ms. Dervin's) and HERE (Mr. Smith's Science demonstration).
