During our Science Week all classes complete hands on experiments related to the topics of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. All classes set up a Science display and complete demonstrations, experiments and investigations for their Parents and members of the local community. Past pupils from Scoil Aonghusa Senior have also been invited. Science Day is always a very enjoyable day in our school. In Scoil Aonghusa Junior we have a great tradition and love for all things Science!
