Esker Educate Together National School has just been awarded a Science Foundation Ireland Discover Science and Maths Plaque of STEM Excellence for the 2015/16 academic year. We are thrilled to see that all of the science, technology, engineering and maths work, carried out in our school has been acknowledged and celebrated with this award. I know that the children really enjoyed taking part in the Awards programme this year. A most hearty congratulations to 6th Class Green and their teacher Deirdre who organised and led the programme in the school this year. I know that Deirdre also wanted to thank Niamh who was responsible for our success in this area over the last two years and gave invaluable advice to Deirdre who was leading the application for the first time. Well done to all involved.
