Science Week 2011

Holy Family BNS has been awarded three successive “Science and Maths School of Excellence” by the national science body Primary As part of the schools work towards a fourth award, the school hosted renowned astronomer Kevin Sweeny, who spoke to the senior classes. Fourth class had a brilliant “Magic Science” talk in Carlow Library. Steve Allman, scientist,  amazed the children with a brilliant talk on the magic of science including beds of nails and making beakers disappear in water. Sixth class travelled to Carlow IT where NASA Astronaut Captain Greg Johnson totally captivated the children with his adventures aboard the space station orbiting planet earth. He also spoke of the honour of being the last pilot of the space shuttle Endeavour. It was just an unforgettable occasion. Holy Family BNS would like to thank Fiona Roberts, Carlow Library and Aisling Fitzgerald Carlow IT for organising these wonderful events. Finally, Holy Family BNS, are honoured to be the only primary school in Carlow to have their science project “No More Paper Money” accepted to be part of the Young Scientist exhibition in the RDS in Dublin on January 24th2012.
