Waterford students 'box office records' at Forum

Presentation Secondary School students enjoying bingo at the Waterford Forum

A Waterford school held its inaugural annual bingo night at the Forum this month. 

The event was a fundraiser for this year’s Presentation Secondary School transition year musical Hairspray. 

“Staff at the Forum were so overwhelmed by the number of people attending that they had to hire extra personnel for the night," a school spokesperson said. 

"It seems that our transition years have broken all their box office records. We are very lucky to have so much support from our very wide school community and to have such a wonderful and hardworking group of students."

STEM

Second year higher level maths students enjoyed a visit to Waterford Institute of Technology’s STEM Engagement Centre Calmast as part of Maths Week. The girls were delighted to get the opportunity to exercise their problem-solving skills by participating in an activity using sets and cards. 

Third year science students were also very excited when they got the opportunity to attend a DNA workshop, also facilitated by Calmast. This interactive and fun workshop, where the girls got to learn a great deal about genetic variation, was conducted by Dr Cas Kramer of Leicester University.
