We received a lovely letter from Sister Bernadette O Gorman on behalf of the Nazareth House, Fahan. Thank you again to all who helped in organising the Coffee Morning, who came along and supported/donated to it and to the children who picked the Nazareth House as this years worthy recipient of the proceeds.

 Our Senior room pupils are taking part in the  Transition Year Sports Ambassador Programme with Ms Jenna Mc Daid and a number of transition students from Scoil Mhuire, Buncrana.

Here they are taking part in multi-skill lessons and they really enjoyed it!

Science Week 10th – 14th November

As it was science week, a lot of emphasis was put on science experiments where pupils carried out the investigations.

  1. Food Dye:

Pupils learned about primary colours and what happens when they are mixed. Pupils dipped half of the kitchen roll into a glass jar full of red food dye. They turned it around and dipped the other half of the kitchen roll into blue dye. In the middle of the paper, pupils began to see the red and blue blending together to make purple. Once dried pupils discussed the colours and took them home.

  1. Kites

Pupils used plastic shopping bags and wool/string to create a home-made kite. Pupils brought these outside and had a kite race.

  1. Foam Telephones

Pupils worked in pairs to create a telephone using foam cups and string. Pupils talked in loud/soft/funny voices to their partners who tried to figure out what they were saying.

  1. Float/Sink

Pupils discussed the meaning of floating/sinking. Certain objects were tested such as scissors, paper clips, crayons, ball, etc. Pupils predicted what would happen, if they thought the object would float they held up their yes (green tick) card. If they thought it would sink they held up their no (red x) card.
