Award for Excellence in Science,Technology and Maths

In 2020/2021, we were awarded our fourth Discover Primary Science and Maths Plaque of STEM Excellence. We received some very positive feedback from the awards team;

Congrats to everybody in Curtlestown NS on a great year’s work. You have show a very wide and varies range of activities with great use being made of your own environment. I love your “pet day” and the wildflower naming activity is great.
The school seems to be full of budding engineers and that section of your project is excellent.
Once again, well done to all the pupils, teachers and parents involved during a very trying year. You have well merited your award and keep up the good work.

Discover Primary Science (DPS) is the national programme to foster interest in science Maths and engineering among children in primary schools.

Participating schools carry out a range of science activities in the classroom and are also encouraged to undertake additional explorative activities and projects.

In the past, the whole school worked hard with experiments, investigations, Science and Maths fairs to achieve this award. Added criteria were evidence of engagement in 
Communication Technology in addition to Science, Maths and Engineering. Well done everybody!
