O Donoghue; "The effects of psoriasis on adolescent mental health in 2018", researched by Hannah Keane, Ria Buckley, with teacher J.O Donoghue; "A one-stop shop website for parents of school leavers", investigated by Sarah Linehan, Ryan Murray, Sylvester Brak", under the tutelage of D.

Guerin; "Assessing economic activity using waste types and volumes from a recycling centre", conducted by Daniel Buckley, Noah Moynihan and teacher S. Guerin.

It all sounds impressive and the best of luck to all. As well as gaining valuable scientific insights into these areas, the students will develop skills on the scientific process and data-gathering techniques, skills which will be vital in future college studies and careers.
