Discover Science Award of Excellence
Discover Primary Science and Maths (DPSM) is the national programme, run by Science Foundation Ireland, to foster interest in science, technology engineering and maths amongst children in primary schools.
We are delighted to have been awarded our seventh Discover Primary Science and Maths Award. Children are given the opportunity to explore, predict, question, observe and communicate while carrying out practical hands on investigations and experiments. We focused on science for School Self Evaluation in 2015 and we are proud of what we have achieved since then.
A special thanks to Ms. Doherty and Ms. Scanlon for all their work in the area of Science.
We are busy again this year preparing for another application.
