We received fantastic news this evening - following the hard work of all of our classrooms this year we have achieved a Science Foundation Ireland Discover Science and Maths Plaque of STEM Excellence for the 2015/16 academic year.
There are two types of awards given to schools: a certificate of STEM work in School, and a Plaque of STEM excellence for deeper engagement, whole school involvement and external science engagement.
Our school was awarded this Plaque of Excellence to mark the hard work that all classes have undertaken this year in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM).
Discover Primary Science and Maths (DPSM) is the national programme, run by the Science Foundation Ireland, to foster interest in STEM amongst children in primary schools!
Our Plaque will arrive next week and we are looking forward to displaying it in our hallway!
