Science Week

“15-Second Quizzes”

To Celebrate National Science (November13th-17th), the Science Department in the school organised a series of short quizzes for both Junior Cycle and Senior Cycle students.

Three short Science questions for the Junior Cycle students and three questions for the Senior Cycle students were called out over the intercom each day at different times.

The first students with the correct answers written down were allowed to leave class to dash to the Mall to be adjudicated by the Science Teachers there.

The lucky winner each day was the recipient of a Voucher for the School Canteen (sponsored by the Principal).The results and answers were then posted on the Noticeboard for all to see.

The students enjoyed the daily competition which was both fun and educational and there was a good atmosphere and great participation around the event. The rationale was that Science can be fun and accessible to all students in the School and inclusive of all years.

Thanks to all who took part each day and Thanks to the Teachers who facilitated it, supplied questions and adjudicated them.

Thanks to the School for sponsoring the prizes and the fifth year students for helping out , particularly Neil Flahive and Daniel Buckley for being the Quizmasters!

The winners were: From Junior Cycle: Diarmuid Cronin, Linda Desmond, Darragh Kelleher, Daniel Buckley. The Senior Cycle winners were: Colm O Leary, Eoin O Callaghan and Shane Hickey.
