A busy week here in St. Eunan’s College saw the rolling out of our first ever Engineering Week which saw a host of engineering related events being run throughout the school. Our first years pitted themselves, and their creative minds, against one another on a class by class basis as they competed in events as varied as having to construct the tallest and most stable tower from only 15 sheets of paper, VEX Robot Control and F1 Formula 1 Drag Racing. Eventually a team from St. Ambrose were crowned Engineering Champions and took the bragging rights. of course none of this would be possible without the hard work of technology and maths teachers in the STEAM Dept, and a special word of thianks must go to Mr. Shaun McGinley for his direction and co-ordination of the week and to Mr. O’Donnell for recording the event so professionally. Onwards and upward for next years event. The bar has been set very high but with such a collection of STEAM minds on display from our first years we are already looking forward to next year. Please check ou our gallery for more photos.
The Literacy Team and all in St. Eunan’s College are delighted to be welcoming RTE great Don Conroy and his son Richie, children’s author, screen writer and Poetry Ireland Director of Writers, to the school on Thursday 7th.
