Science Week 2017

Our 5th classes attended the very first event of Science Week 2017. It was called ‘The Real Science of the Circus’ and took place this morning in Ardscoil na Mara. It was presented and performed by James Soper. 
James taught us about forces and how they are used to perform all kinds of circus tricks. He was interesting and funny and explained things really well. We helped him with magnets, gravity, spinning and skateboards. He is a really good juggler and unicyclist and can spin a football on a drill!
Thanks to Ardscoil na Mara for hosting the event and to Calmast at W.I.T. for bringing it to Tramore.

Green Flag News

We were delighted to welcome back Mrs. Brennan to school today. She was here to raise our Green Flag, which was awarded for the theme of Transport. Fr. Shane was also in attendance. 

The Green Schools Committee worked very hard to make this a very special ceremony. Our school choir sang magnificently!

Holy Cross School was also awarded a Euro250 voucher for having the highest number of children walking, cycling, scooting or car pooling to school. 

The survey was carried out by Mrs. Brennan and the Green School Committee.

The equipment purchased and members of the committee are included in some of the photos below.
