    • A new science club started this week for students in S1 & S2.   The club runs every Wednesday lunchtime from 12:45 – 13:15 and takes place in Lab 8.  The first week saw a series of fun and safe experiments involving explosions & fire hands.
  • S1 Basketball Challenge
    • Congratulations to Team Precision (under the guidance of S6 Sports Leader John O’Hagan), on winning the S1 Basketball Challenge. After a very tight competition the team won on a tense deciding game of ‘Killer Basketball’.  Thanks to our 5A Sports Leaders class for their involvement over the weeks in organising and running the competition.  The Sports Leaders each had a specialised role from explaining the rules, to being referees, coaches, equipment manager, time keepers, organising the competition format, scorers & encouraging each of the participants.  A great group of role models
      Well done to all students who have taken part over the last few weeks.
