We would like to wish Andrew Robinson (J1) good luck in this years Young Scientist Exhibition in the RDS, he performed very well with the judges yesterday and is now looking forward to the awards ceremony this evening. We encourage all students to go to the exhibition to support Andrew. We would like to thank Ms. Aoife Byrne and Ms. S. Fraser (Blackrock College) for her help and support of Andrew in completing his project "Rollerboard".
We would also like to congratulate a past student, Joshua Kieran Glennon on his entry "Cad Faoin Gaeilge? Attitudes of Urban Cared Boys Aged 8 - 14." Joshua has carried out a very large amount of research on his topic and demonstrated an excellent knowledge on the topic to the judges and all onlookers.
