Third and fourth Classes did some experiments based on sound. It was great fun !

On Thursday, Kiltimagh Pet Farm brought some animals to our school. This visit was organised by Bank of Ireland as part  of Enterprise Week. The children really enjoyed holding and learning  about the different animals!
