Science week is here!

This week is Science Week. 

It will be a different week for us in St. Pats as we will miss welcoming all our parents and friends to the school for our Science Fayre, but we will still enjoy taking part!

Mr. Horan will put on his Scientist Hat and will do some Science Experiments with the classes.
