The girls from 4th & 5th classes got to experience 'Foodoppi's Molecular Gastronomy Edible Science Show' in Le Chéile during Science week. Foodoppi presented "Eat your Science" hosted by Celebrity Chef Louise Lennox and Food Scientist Aisling Larkin. The exciting, fast paced science and food show gave the children an opportunity to see food become experiments they could eat. It also enabled the children to explore chemical reactions and physical changes of food. unlocking the science secrets, amazing their eyes and tastebuds! A traditional fruit salad was redesigned using the knowledge of hydrocolloids and the world of renowned molecular gastronomy techniques to make fruit spaghetti, yogurt spheres and cook with one of the coldest liquids on the planet, liquid nitrogen. 

The girls had an amazing time, getting to explore food, flavour and science!

The girls in Ms.McKenna's 3rd class visited our local Super Valu in Killester this morning. They learned about the importance of nutrition, eating a balanced diet and living a healthy lifestyle. The girls were guided through the bakery and the fresh food produce and lots more. They got to sample some healthy foods too and were also very grateful to have received a goody bag full of healthy pieces!

3rd Class Super Valu Visit

Our two 5th classes made the trip into the docklands on Fri nov 17th to tour the historic Jeanie Johnston Tall Ship. The tour involved getting a sense of the experience of the millions of people who crossed the Atlantic Ocean in tall ships, seeking survival and hope in the "New World".

5th Class Famine Ship Trip

The children in 4th class had great fun using lego WeDo construction sets and laptops to programme a crocodile to open and close its mouth. The girls learned lots about following instructions and how coding works. They worked in groups and were challenged to complete the task set. They used motors and sensors to move their creation. It was a big hit in the classes and immensely enjoyed by all!
