Engineers Week

March 13th, 2017

As part of Engineers Week, 5th and 6th class were delighted to be invited to visit Atlantic Airventure in Shannon last week. There, we met volunteers who work in local company, Lufthansa Technik. We learned how different parts of an airplane are made and got to look inside an old engine. Some groups got to fly their own arcade simulator while other groups got to go into a real simulator with a real pilot. That was great fun!! We also watched a a video of how planes are made…it’s a complicated process!! We got to see many different types of old planes that aren’t in use anymore. Some of us even got to sit into the cockpit of one plane!!

Before we left, we all got a goody bag, t-shirts and some life jackets for our school!

Huge thanks to all the staff in Atlantic Airventure and the people from Lufthansa Technik who gave up their time!

Junior Achievement

In 3rd Class, we have been really lucky to be learning about our town with our Junior Achievement volunteer Caroline. Caroline works in a local company and is sharing all her business experiences with our class.  It is very interesting to learn about people who work in our community. Here are some pictures of a city that we build. We had lots of fun constructing our buildings which formed our city.
