Our school has won a Discovery Science and Maths Award for six years now!
Discovery Science and Maths aims to increase interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) among students, teachers and members of the public.
This programme introduces primary school students to science and maths in a practical, hands-on, enjoyable and interactive way.
