Pupils  in 4th, 5th and 6th class were presented with an award for their project on Designing an Archimedes Screw at the ESB Science Blast in the RDS this week.

The goal of the Science Blast programme is to ignite children’s innate curiosity about the world around them and aims to promote curiosity, collaboration, creativity and critical thinking in children at primary school age to enable them to better respond to the challenges of the future.

This epitomises our school values and the 21st century skills that we aim to develop in Faughart CNS.


Pupils also had a blast at the two science shows; one about tiny things and the other about football physics. It was a brilliant experience!
