Engineering

We are striving to provide our pupils with lots of different learning opportunities across the STEM subjects. We hope to inspire our children to become engineers, mathematicians, scientists or mechanics.

Engineer’s Visit

Ms.Higgin’s class had a visit form a civil engineer Niall Gibbons. He talked to the children about his job and worked with them to design their dream homes.

 March 2018

We are so lucky to have the company ‘Learn It’ in our school this week to provide Lego workshops to all our children. Our pupils have had wonderful experiences of thinking like an engineer and we certainly have many budding engineers walking our corridors.

Infant Classes

Junior & Senior Infants learnt about Gears and how different Gear Combinations effected the speed of their Spinning Top projects.
