Ms. Bleahene’s Rang a 6 were lucky to visit the new Microsoft campus in Leopardstown this week. As part of the visit they had to predict what the world would be like in 2050. You can read their submissions and an account of the visit here.

On Wednesday, we (Calum, Conor, George and I) went to the Intel Mini-Scientists Leinster Regional fair (held in Institute of Technology, Blanchardstown) after we were one of two groups selected to represent our school. Prizes were given to sixteen groups out of approx. 90 from all over Leinster. Our winning project was on the school towels’ hygiene. This idea was thought of at first as a joke by one of our members: Calum, when we realised it wasn’t a bad idea, this joke turned out for us qualifying in the Intel Mini Scientists National final 2019 in February…… We can’t wait!

After a wet week mainly spent indoors, the sun shone on Friday morning and 72 boys were happy to get a good run-out in the magnificent grounds of Terenure College. Out of four boys’ races we had three winners with Cillian, Ben and Gareth all winning their races. What a great achievement! Unfortunately, despite a great all-round effort by Ms Tynan’s and Mr. Brennan’s classes we were just pipped by St. Mary’s for the team event as they had more top 10 finishers than us. There will be more cross country events coming up after Christmas and every boy from 3rd to 6th will get a chance to represent the school so keep active everyone!
