Library News Week Beginning 27th of November (18)
JCSP Science Fair
As we had not celebrated Science Week because of our house exams, we decided to hold an event this week in the Library.
Ms O'Keefe worked with her 2nd year Science class to prepare lots of interesting experiments to show to visiting primary schools. Two 5th classes groups from Central Model visited on Thursday and we have invited other schools to visit in January. Our students worked really hard and and explained each of their experiments very well. They looked very professional in their lab coats and took full ownership of the event.
