National Award for Éabha Kenny
Congratulations to second year student Éabha Kenny who competed with the top minds at the SciFest 2018 National Final recently. Éabha was awarded the Broadcom Masters Award for her project which investigated “how microwave radiation affects living organisms”. She observed how microwave radiation influences living organisms i.e. radish plants. She exposed different groups of radish plant seeds to different levels of radiation and tracked its effect on their growth. As part of her prize Éabha will attend the International Science and Engineering Fair in Phoenix, Arizona next May. Éabha would like to thank her Science teacher, Mr. Harlow for all his help and advice. Well done Éabha!

Zebinar is a Wellbeing and Education movement for Generation Z that caters for all 15-20 year olds and their parents, teachers, mentors and coaches, irrespective of academic ability or socio-economic background. Zeminar facilitates the introduction of young people to some of the best and most innovative organisations on this island. Throughout the event the girls attended workshops, listened to influential speakers, looked at essential resources and partook in a variety of fun activities. The girls left the event with new knowledge to help them live happier, safer, and more fulfilling lives. A big thank you to Mrs. Fitzmaurice and Ms. Henriques for accompanying the girls on the day
