Power(ful) Points from Ms Kernan’s First Year Class.

Ms Kernan asked 1N to present Powerpoints on energy and was electrified by the the high standard of the science projects.

Joel Kombara did his presentation on the general heading of ‘Energy’
Niall Heeney and Ben Mc Carthy were gas with their ‘Fossil Fuels’
Sarah O’ Flaherty and Leah Foran shone with ‘Solar Energy’. ‘Nuclear Power’ by Emile Meister, Dumebi Nwosu and Darragh Hogan got a great reaction and ‘Water Power’ by Lauren Upton was dam good. (Sad puns supplied by Mr Clarke). Well done to 1N and Ms Kernan. Click on the Powerpoints below to view them:

Numeracy Week in PCS.

Numeracy week takes place from Monday 6 March. It aims to further raise awareness of the importance of problem solving skills and how they can be applied in everyday situations. There will be puzzles to be solved, prizes to be won and the unveiling of our Numeracy Board.

Thanks to the Numeracy Committee of teachers and Mr Murphy’s Numeracy Team of TY students.

Visit the library during the week and look out for the table in the assembly Hall on Friday.

As part of our numeracy week there will be a ‘guess the number of sweets in the jar’ challenge, the winner will be the person who guesses correctly or who is closest to.

The jar of sweets will be displayed in the assembly hall on Friday and email Ms Maguire with your answer. One entry per student. Good luck.
There will be a treasure hunt around the school on Friday clue sheets will be available from the library.
