Lego League Launch in DCU

For the last three weeks in science our class and Ms. Redmond’s class worked on Lego projects. We had to make a Lego project with a motor and once we built it we then had to connect it to an iPad to programme it. Programming lego and making models with motors, gears and pulleys was new for us. Finally we had to design a poster showing all the stuff we learned about our animal, explaining how it shared its habitat with the honey bee and describing how we made our lego model.
Last Saturday, 11th February, we went to the first Lego League JR showcase in DCU-St Pat’s College. There were some other schools there and they all had great creations. There were lots of different projects. A few groups did owls, snakes, foxes, bears and rabbits. The judges came around and asked us lots of questions about how we made our lego models and how they worked. We all got different awards based on our project. The Lego was great fun and we hope we get to do it again soon.
Many thanks to teachers Mr. Murtagh, Ms. Redmond, Mr. Smyth and Ms. Lally

Another great swimming day for the Pius Boys' team at the National Schools gala, held yesterday Sunday 12th February in the National Aquatic Centre. While qualifying for the nationals was a great achievement, the boys swam fantastically with personal bests and medals all around. Conor won national Gold in the 50m Butterfly and Silver in a very close 50 Free. Cillian came 4th in the 50 Free and won Bronze in the 50m Back. Aaron and Jake had PBs in very fast races. The boys had a great day as seen in the photo.
