World Book Day took place in Thursday 4th March this year. We celebrated in style in Scoil Ide this year both in school and at home.
Our junior students were able to celebrate in school, while our senior students celebrated online as they are still working from home.

Engineer's Week 2021
Engineer's Week took place around the country from 1st-5th March. Here in Scoil Ide, we celebrated by taking part in a variety of experiments both at home and in school. You can check out our amazing gallery to see what we got up to. Well done to everyone who took part. STEM is such an integral part of learning. Strong STEM skills lead to more beautiful art, more engrossing performances, and more polished productions. STEM classes develop those soft skills that so many careers need– skills like communication, problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, and data analysis
Lockdown Learning Gallery
All the boys and girls in Scoil Íde are very busy at home during Lockdown. We believe it is very important to showcase the work of our very talented students whenever we can. Therefore, we have created our own "Lockdown Learning Gallery" where everyone can come and see the amazing work our students have been producing. So remember, if you would like to see your work in the "Lockdown Learing Gallery", make sure you send your work into your teacher on Aladdin. You'd never know, it might be your picture or writing that gets put up next! We also have a selection of videos of students work just below the "Lockdown Learning Gallery"
