Maths week 2018 is being celebrated in Holy Family School this year with many activities planned for all classes.  The events of Maths Week were designed to present Maths as interesting, challenging and yet rewarding  -  and  yes even fun!

Our PE hall is transformed this week to ‘The Hall of Number’! All pupils have an opportunity to take part as there are activities for all mathematical abilities.

Principal Ed O’ Brien is very impressed by the enthusiasm that exists for Maths among the staff and pupils of Holy Family School.  Holy Family School is committed to the promotion of STEM and will also participate in the VEX Robotics Programme in the coming year.

Thanks to Brigid Crowley, Head of Computing Dept. IT Tralee  and John Walsh Lecturer IT Tralee,  the pupils of Holy Family School can now enjoy VEX Robotics.  This is an exciting and fun programme where school children from 8 - 18 years of age learn about Science Technology Engineering & Maths (STEM) while having fun!

VEX bring STEM skills to llife by tasking teams of students with designing and building robots to play against other teams in a game-based engineering challenge.  Classroom STEM concepts are put to the test as students learn lifelong skills in teamwork, leadership, communications and more.
