Lego Workshop 2017

As part of science week 2017 activities, each First and Third Class attended a LEGO® Challenge workshop in the school delivered by Young Engineers Ireland.


The main goal of Young Engineers is to give pupils a hands on experience on the basic principles in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) using motorised LEGO® bricks and other methods that produce motion. The pupils enjoyed building their very own LEGO® washing machine models and conveyor belts.

Bebras Challenge!

The Irish Bebras Computational Thinking Challenge takes place between 6th and 17th November 2017 and classes from 3rd to 6th have been invited to take part. Bebras Challenges test your logic and computational skills through different types of fun and challenging problems.

Here's a sample problem for you to try and solve at home: 

Four beavers start swimming at different places. They only swim forward and always follow the arrows.

Which beavers will reach the strawberry? 

Oíche Shamhna faoi mhaise daoibh!

We hope everyone had a fun-filled Halloween and a relaxing midterm break!

Scoil Thomáis will re-open at 9am on Monday 6th of November.
