Congratulations to our Young Scientists and their mentors on their fantastic achievements at YSE 2013. As well as winning the award for Best School, we won a first, 2 seconds and 5 highly commended plus 5 Special Awards. Jack Laighin received a top Biology award and will represent Ireland at an international competition in Texas. The students were marvellous ambassadors for the school throughout the exhibition. Great credit is due to the teachers who mentored the projects –Mr. H. OCallaghan, Ms. K. Lyne, Ms. L. Marron and Ms. J. Gleeson. Thanks also to the the Science Department and all other teachers who accompanied 150 1st Year Students to view the exhibition on Saturday 12th January.
