Science Blast


On Wednesday the 24th of May, both 3rd classes went to Science Blast in Mary I College, Limerick. We went there on the bus. Tina curled her hair and makeup on the bus. When we arrived we got wristbands and pins for our uniform. There were stands for every project and loads of people there. There were students from all over Munster there. Each class presented their project to the judges. There were science shows on different topics such as aerodynamics, one about astronauts. We got to meet a real astronaut Norah Patten. Tina’s 3rd class’s project was about how electric cars work and Michelle’s 3rd class’s project was about how our eyes work. Both classes won a trophy. Some of us got interviewed by Spin South West.

We all met television presenters Clara Murray and John Sharpson. Everyone working there was very nice and gave us high fives.

On the way back we went to Hungry Lyons for something because we were starving after our long and exciting day. We arrived back at the school at half three.

Munster Credit Union Quiz

On 2/3/2023, the quiz team met at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Limerick at 6:00pm. There were schools from Clare, Limerick, Tipperary, and Kerry though most of the schools were from Limerick. There were 10 rounds for the junior teams and 12 for the senior teams with 6 questions each. They told us the score every 4 rounds. In the 4th round, when they told us the score, we were second last so we thought we lost. In the 8th round, we were tied for second! And after we waited for the senior rounds to finish, we heard that we got 41 points which was the highest score by one. Ennis National School came first in the senior rounds. Some of the questions were really hard but some were easy and some we knew by luck! Now we are going to the RDS in Dublin on April 2nd for the All-Ireland Credit Union Quiz final
