The children in P5 have been working hard on Primary Engineer STEM challenge. They learned about electronic aerodynamics, circuits, gears and friction, then used what they had learned to design and build their own powered vehicle. Two teams of children (Mateo de Medina, Joseph Fallon, Imogen Porteus and Lola Punton) took their vehicles to the Renfrewshire celebration event at AFRC, Inchinnan, where they competed with P5 – 7 pupils from across the authority. Both teams demonstrated a great level of understanding and were very supportive of each other and the other participants. The girls were awarded a medal for the ‘Best Themed Vehicle’ and certificates for coming second place in the competition.
On Thursday our Primary 7 pupils attended a Confirmation Retreat along with Primary 7 pupils from St. Paul’s Primary School. In preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation, the children
took part in some fun activities, including meditation, which re-enforced their learning about the Gifts of the Holy Spirit and the Fruits of the Holy Spirit.
The children had a great day!
