Lego League 2024: Well done to 6th class and Mr. Davey on taking part in their first Lego League Competition. The event took place in Tús Athlone on the 8th of February. 6th class have been working extremely hard on this project over the past few months with Mr. Davey and former pupil Clodagh Reid. We are very proud of their exploits and hopefully this will become an annual event for the school.
