and a lot of other activities on, we still manged to have over 25 bikes in school on the day.

Mieke from An Taisce led the boys in some cycle games on the yard and then took a group

of 14 senior boys for a very informative puncture repair workshop. The winning pair of

boys in the workshop were Kieran Riley and Alex Smith. Well done boys!

Remember to stay safe on bikes and wear your jacket and helmet always..

June 2012 Trinity Chemistry Professor visits St.Brendans PS

June 14, 2012

On Wednesday 6th June, we were deloghted to welcome Professor Mathias Senge to the school. Professor Senge is a leading Chemistry professor at

Trinity College Dublin. He did some chemistry experiments with Senior Infants and 1st class in which all of the boys got to be messy and made

their own ice-cream and working volcanos. The ice-cream was said to be the best ever !!

This visit was through the Science Speakers scheme which we were kindly made aware of  through one of our Senior Infant parents. Many thanks.

We hope that the visit encourages our boys to get involved with science into the future
