For “Engineers Week 2014” 5th and 6th classes from St. Edwards visited I.T. Sligo for a presentation on the work that Engineers do in the world around us. They were show many experiments and found how science is linked to how engineers work and create many different items.
We have had such a busy week in junior infants preparing for our St. Edward’s birthday celebrations. We made lots of decorations for the classroom. We were also very busy on Thursday baking our treats for our birthday party on Friday.
All the hard work was worth it as we had a lovely day today. Our birthday party was a huge success and we would like to say thanks to all the parents that came to our party and to parents who couldn’t make it we hope you enjoy your goody bag which was sent home full of our homemade treats. Enjoy.
