    Stem Challenge in the Senior Room

    Pupils in 4th, 5th and 6th class were challenged with building a rainforest dwelling/house that would withstand monsoon conditions. They were encouraged to use natural materials as far as possible. Children used wooden blocks; mud; twigs; leaves; elastic bands; bits of tiles/slates and some tinfoil for the roof.

    All houses were well designed and survived the initial monsoon weather conditions (rain – and wind). However when they began to dry out in the coming days some houses suffered damage to the walls from the dry conditions – the walls became too dry and started cracking. They had great fun designing and building the houses and putting them to the test.

    Lees Road Athletics

    The annual East Clare Primary Schools cross country event took place yesterday in Lees Road. Well done to all the children who took part – over thirty children represented the school at the event. Thank you to Mrs Conlon, Mary and all the parents who attended the event and helped the children on the day. Congratulations to Aoibheann Daly who goes on to represent the school at the county day in November.
