Technology Challenge

Ella Miskelly, Shauna Megoran and Caitlin Lavery where chosen to represent our school in the SEELB Technology Challenge which took place in St Mary’s High School, Downpatrick. Their task was to design a tower for Harry Potter that could swivel automatically and allow him to see all around. Only the set materials could be used and a strict time limit was applied.  Our team worked tirelessly and produced a fantastic windmill that met all of the criteria.  There was great delight as our team achieved third place, narrowly missing out for qualification for the regional finals by one point.



Children's Author, Colin Bateman visits St Patrick's

The P5, 6 and 7 children thoroughly enjoyed today's visit form Colin Bateman, the well known author.  It was great to see the interest amongst the children as they learned about the life of an author and shared some of his writing.  The questions that were asked by the children were very challenging and showed how keen they were to learn about how to write stories.

We thank Colin for coming along to our school and for the wonderful way he talked to the children.

Who knows, maybe some day one of these boys and girls may return to St Patrick's as a famous author.


Technology Challenge

Last week our school team competed in the SEELB Technology Challenge.  The aim was to produce a tower for harry Potter that allowed him to be able to see all around and that moved remotely. 

The girls worked fantastically well together, planning, designing and then constructing their model.  With great anticipation the results were read out by the judges and we achieved third place out of the many schools who attended.


Well done to our Technology team.
