The pupils in 3rd and 4th class are currently participating in two Samba workshops with Kieran Gallagher. They enjoyed all the fun warm-up activities and playing the various rhythms on actual Samba drums and percussion instruments.

We discussed materials and their uses and why certain materials are chosen for certain objects.

The girls then designed their own boat using suitable materials. The next task was to make a boat that would float and hold a small weight ( a magnet!!).

The girls really enjoyed this and I’m sure you’ll agree they were very inventive and creative!

Girls from 5th and 6th class took part in the Design A Car, Schools Challenge.
The aim of the competition was to design a car which would be on display at the Drogheda Motor Show, June 19th -21st 2015.

Holly Carolan and Aoife Smith O Brien from Miss Carroll’s class won our school competition with their design. They got to paint their design on a model car provided by Smiths Garage, Drogheda. Their entry will be in the final and will be up against winning entries from other schools in the locality. We wish them the very best of luck in the final and we are very proud of their very colourful and eye catching design.SAM_3292
