Discover Primary Science and Maths Award!!

We were delighted when  the Discover Science and Maths Award was awarded to St. Colmcille’s GNS for the first time. A special assembly was held to appreciate and celebrate the hard work undertaken to achieve this award. We are now busy working on further experiments!

Discover Primary Science and Maths is the national programme to foster interest in science,maths and engineering among children in primary schools. Participating schools carry out a range of science activities in the classroom and are also encouraged to undertake additional explorative activities and projects. An Award is available to schools that go beyond basic participation and carry out a range of additional explorative activities. Our girl’s excelled in all areas and we are very proud of their achievement.A huge thank you to Ms O’Connell and all of the teachers for leading the girls in their learning. Next year we are dreaming bigger
