Last week was Science Week and Robertstown N.S. was very busy. All classes got active with hands on science activities and experiments in class. We had the pleasure of three guest speakers, Noel Barbour a aeronautical engineer, Linda Poole a nurse and Sinead and Teresa who taught us all about working with microscopes. We are working hard to achieve our Discover Primary Science and Maths Award of Excellence this year.

Plans are progressing steadily for the construction of a Christmas Grotto. Our Wish List was circulated last week. Many thanks to the parents and children who have already donate/sent items for the grotto. We still need lots of decoration, lights and Christmas trees of all sizes. All donations are appreciated. We intend that the Grotto will be open on 1st December 2017 and that it will bring Christmas joy to everybody associated with Robertstown N.S.
