We are delighted to have been awarded the Sfi Curious Minds Gold Award. These awards are awarded for the whole school’s engagement in:

  1. Science
  2. Technology
  3. Engineering
  4. Maths
  5. STEM Showcase

This was the really positive feedback we received for our School’s Log of Evidence:

Well done to all the staff and learners at Macroom Convent National School.
We are very impressed by the incredible array of STEM activities at your school and want to say congratulations to all involved, especially to the learners who got up to all sorts this year. From learning about how the heart works to Hooks law and participating in an environmental action cleaning up the locality, It has truly been an exciting year of STEM exploration at your school, and one where many skills were developed along the way. We were also delighted to see the level of engagement from parents who presented and helped during Engineers Week.
Superb work, and congratulations on your well-deserved Gold Award!
