Engineering Week 2013
As part of the Engineers’ Week initiative, our pupils from 5th and 6th class will be taking part in a school education trip to the Engineering Department in Athlone IT on Friday 1st March 2013. They will have the opportunity to visit laboratories and hopefully see some exciting engineering and scientific experiments in action. We’re really looking forward to our trip!!!
