Science Week 2016

Science Week Ireland 2016 was celebrated at Hazelwood College with the eighth Annual Primary Schools’ Science Quiz on Thursday night, November 17th. All local primary schools were invited to attend this exciting event to promote Science Week. It was wonderful to welcome all of the primary school pupils, teachers, parents and friends who attended on the night. During eight rounds of questioning all of the primary pupils thoroughly impressed with their teamwork and knowledge. Spectacular lucky dip spot prizes and tasty, fruity refreshments were very popular among the eager pupils at the half-time break. As the end of the quiz came close, excitement was high as the top three placed teams became apparent. Congratulations to Courtney Boys National School in Newcastle West, who were overall winners, with Broadford National School coming in second place and Ballyagran National School placing third. Thank you and well done to all the teams from Dromcollogher, Tullylease, Monagea, Ballingarry, Milford, Dromina, Ratheena, Feenagh, Mahoonagh and Gaelscoil O Doghair.
