STEPS Young Engineers project in 3rd class @EngineerIreland

Ms. Molloy’s 3rd class are taking part in the STEPS Young Engineers Awards Project this year.

They had a visit from an engineer, Mr. Dave Keeshan, this week.  Mr. Keeshan is a past pupil of our school and was excited to return and see all the children’s work.
