The girls represented the school and themselves with great competence and were so articulate when presenting their projects to the judges and other interested people as well as a number of VIP’s.

We want to congratulate Jasmine and Diamond, both 1st years, who were placed 2nd in the Junior Group, Chemical Physical and Mathematical category for their project on resonance in wine glasses.

Also Caoimhne and Emma Jane  were awarded a display award and Sarah, Rameen and Saoirse have been invited to put their project forward for the Young Environmentalist Awards.
