Well done Jan.

Jan Zacharias Garcia was one of the finalists in the Dublin/Wicklow region of the Junior Maths Competition run by the Irish Mathematics Teachers’ Association. He represented the school very well with his very happy and supportive family! He received a certificate for reaching the regional final. He is an excellent  young mathematician who enjoys challenging maths problems and is eager and willing to work on tricky questions which he’s never studied before.

Class 3H Action Project to Fingal County Council.

 

 

On the 25th of January 2018, class 3H went on a trip to Fingal County Council in Swords as a part of our CSPE action project which is on local government. We went with our CSPE teacher Mr. McGovern. The action project is worth 60% of our CSPE Junior Cert grade.

At the end of this trip we felt like we understood more about about local government and that Fingal had taken on our ideas to improve the beaches.
