The biennial STEAM Fair was held on the Thursday 24th October for pupils in P6 – S2. As always at this event, there was a fantastic atmosphere as pupils enjoyed shows from the Glasgow Science Centre, Really Small Science and CGI. In tTe Street area, there was a range of hands on activities with the animal man proving to be as popular as ever.
