St. Dallan’s Primary School Warrenpoint, are this years winners of the St. Louis Grammar School Technology Challenge. Organised for local primary school children aims to promote scientific and technological awareness in primary schools, the event recently took place in the school’s Technology Suite.
Participants were given the opportunity to work in the school’s Technology and Design Department solving practical problems with a range of materials and components. The pupils had to solve a design problem within a specific time, this involved designing and making a product. Judges from St. Louis and sponsors Newry Building Supply awarded marks for good design work, creativity and good construction marks.
All participants produced very creative solutions and the judges found it difficult to select to select an overall winner. However, after some deliberation, St. Dallan’s Primary School were awarded first place. The runners up were All Children’s Primary School Newcastle; third place went to Holy Cross Primary School, Kilkeel.
St. Louis Vice-Principal, Miss Louise Carr, was highly impressed with the quality of the pupils work, highlighting a high level of insight and initiative into the problem solving process. ‘It is magnificent to see young people working together being creative and using their initiative, to solve problems’
The winners received a trophy sponsored by Newry Building Supply and 1st, 2nd and 3rd teams also received prizes. In addition all participants were presented with certificates of participation.
