Children from the senior classes had a great day when they learned how to make a basic electricity circuit using a battery, wire and a bulb. After a few trial runs they quickly realised that they must connect a wire between the battery and the bulb but also another wire from the bulb to the battery.
They also did a few extra experiments:
Does the brightness of the bulb change if there is more than one bulb in the circuit?
Does the brightness change if there are more batteries?
They discussed, compared and recorded their results.

Gaelscoil Cois Feabhail hosted the first round blitz for their division in the Cumann na mBunscol competition. Both the boys and girls school teams took part in the blitz.
Firstly the boys played four matches, where they were the victors in each game, sailing through to the next round.
Then the girls faced three schools, resulting in a playoff with Tiernasligo. Tired from the previous three matches, the girls fought on to play the final match and with a great team effort they won.
Congratulations to all the boys and girls who participated in the blitz and good luck in the next round!!!!!!
