We are thrilled to be one of the few schools in Ireland to awarded the Department of Education’s STEM Grant (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). We have been given 9,943 euro based on our application to the DES which outlined plans to introduce STEM boxes in each of our classrooms, along with increasing our digital technology resources and introducing Let’s Go Code – Activity Lego. All of this will form part of our efforts to ensure the  learner experiences of our pupils are focused, engaging, creative, collaborative and that they are fully immersed and engaged in exploring, communicating and learning through play developing a sense of identity and belonging through play thus supporting the child’s sense of well-being. It is a wonderful achievement for our school and one which we will relish implementing. Well done to Ms. Duddy for coordinating our school’s application.
