23/05/2011 A TASTE OF SCIENCE FOR PRIMARY STUDENTS AT LORETO COLLEGE

Loreto College Coleraine, Specialist School, played host to pupils from three local primary schools on Monday 23rd May 2011, for a special “Taste of Science” event.

Primary  5 and Primary 6 pupils from St Malachy’s PS Coleraine, St John’s PS Coleraine and St Colum’s PS Portstewart 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 and launched rockets and paper aeroplanes in the new Technology building, did “Chemistry set” experiments in the Chemistry labs and made model ladybirds, having spent time with the turtle, hamster and stick insects in the Loreto Biology Department. 

The day proved to be a great success.  Specialist School Primary Links co-ordinator Mrs Sheila McBroom commented that the event would continue to be a tradition beyond the years of Loreto College’s Science Specialism, and paid tribute to the Year 10 Loreto College students who had assisted in the running of the day’s activities. Mrs McBroom also commented on the enthusiasm and interest of the visiting pupils. 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.
