A group of parents meet in our school library every week to take part in the knitting club. During College Awareness Week in the school they were involved in promoting the event and are pictured in our school library. We hope our students will continue to be very college aware and we are proud of our high standing in the recent league tables published in the Irish Independent a few weeks ago.

Principal, staff and students gave a big welcome to our new Deputy Principal, Ms Andrea Murphy, last Monday by hosting a special breakfast club in our Assembly Hall. Ms Murphy was also later welcomed to the school by Ms Reilly, Principal, and the Student Council members. We all wish Ms Murphy the best of luck in her new job and look forward to working with her in the year ahead.

Science Week was a great success in St Pauls this year. Our students got the opportunity to attend and participate in a number of exciting workshops in WIT. These included an interactive “Dynamic DNA” workshop by Kris Kramer from the University of Leicester which our 5th year students really enjoyed. On Wednesday we had our annual visit from The Reptile Zoo. Students were excited to see and learn about a variety of interesting reptiles including a Burmese Snake, a Black and White Tegu, a Tarantula and Tortoise to name a few. Students learned about where these animals live, their diets, their adaptations and how they survive in the wild. Our first and second year students were busy in the weeks leading up to Science week working on a whole variety of projects and learning important research and presentation skills. Their work was displayed in the library at our “Scifest@School and students were presented with certificates of participation.
