27/05/2009 PRIMARY PUPILS HAVE A TASTE OF SCIENCE AT LORETO COLLEGE

Loreto College Coleraine, Specialist School, played host to pupils from three local primary schools on Wednesday 27th May 2009, for a special “Taste of Science” event.

Primary 4 and Primary 5 pupils from St Colum’s PS Portstewart, St John’s PS Coleraine and St Malachy’s PS Coleraine spent an enjoyable morning in Loreto College, as part of the Specialist School initiative.  In the course of a busy morning of hands-on activity, the pupils made rockets in the new Technology building, did “Chemistry set” experiments in the Chemistry labs and made motorised ladybirds, having spent time with the turtle, snake, hamster and stick insects in the Loreto Biology Department. 

The day proved to be a great success.  Specialist School Primary Links co-ordinator Mrs Jane Nugent commented that the event would continue to be a tradition throughout the years of Loreto College’s Science Specialism, and paid tribute to the Year 11 Summer Prefects who had assisted in the running of the day’s activities.  Mr Michael James, Specialist School co-ordinator, and Mr Brian Lenehan, College Principal, praised all the Primary pupils who took part in the event for their great enthusiasm, and their receptiveness to new learning opportunities.
