Tá fíor Eolaí Óg ag Gaelcholáiste Charraig Uí Leighin anois tar éis dhá gradam a bhuachaint ag an dtaispeántas i mBaile Átha Cliath ar an Aoine! Gaelcholáiste Charraig Uí Leighin scooped two big prizes at the Young Scientist & Technology exhibition this week – best technology project and a special award, the Intellectual Ventures Insightful Inventions award. Tomás Ó Cróinín, a third-year student, exhibited a technology project on drones and how much load they can transport. The work started a year ago when Tomás set about looking for a wind tunnel in the area to do his experiments. Unfortunately, there was no wind tunnel available that was large enough to accommodate a drone. Undeterred, Tomás went about building his own wind tunnel at home. After months of hard work and set backs, he began testing his specially-adapted drone in his wind tunnel. His results showed that, by adding a wing to the drone, it could travel further and carry more weight, a very positive finding. Tomás will now have the fantastic opportunity to travel to Seattle to visit Intellectual Ventures’ lab and meet their inventors. The future looks bright for the Gaelcholáiste’s young scientists! Go n-éirí go geal leo!

Sportathon 2017

Gaelcholáiste Charraig Uí Leighin’s Sportathon took place on Friday, May 19th this year. Our pupils enjoyed a wide range of activities throughout the day, including Yoga, Strength and Conditioning, Poc Fada and Tug-of-War. We are very grateful to our Parent’s Association for their huge contribution towards organising and running the Sportathon. Congratulations and well done to our pupils for collecting over €1500 on the day. This money will be used to fund the new School Library. Gurbh fada buan sibh.

The Environmental Committee

Our Coiste Timpeallachta have been very busy setting daffodil bulbs around the school. Well done to everyone on the committee for their hard work.
