Last week (11th-15th November) the students of Scoil Eoin were busy investigating and experimenting. 1st, 2nd, 5th and 6th classes engaged in a forensic Science workshop. The students were faced with a crime scene and had to discover who committed the crime. MSD Brinny came to speak to 4th class.
The remaining classes explored a variety of different experiments through the medium of stations. Lemon volcanoes, ramps, lava lamps and dancing raisins were just some of the weird and wonderful experiments that the children delved into!

Scoil Eoin participated in the Team Hope Christmas Shoebox Appeal again this year. 166 shoeboxes were donated by generous families in the area. These shoeboxes will make their way around the world to vulnerable children in Eastern Europe and Africa, countries were there is no social welfare system, allowances or benefits. Your kindness will bring laughter and excitement to children who may never have received a gift. The fact that someone, somewhere has sent them a present will mean the world to them this Christmas. Well done to all involved!
