Science at the Faythe School

FaceBook  Twitter  

The importance of Science in the primary curriculum and great efforts are being made to make the subject as real as possible for our pupils. Take your time to enjoy the three videos reflecting those efforts on a daily basis.


SCIEN-TASTIC conducted science workshops with 3rd, 4th, 5th & 6th Classes. Offering exciting science for pupils who became real scientists for a day through hands-on experimentation and interactive activities. Kitted out in full safety equipment and supplied with all the necessary ‘science equipment’ not found in Primary schools, these excellent workshops definitely inspired confidence and an enthusiastic interest in science. It is hoped that Scien-tastic will become an annual event at the school. 

 Discovery Primary Science and Maths Awards of  Excellence 2013

The Faythe School was one of only ten primary schools in Co. Wexford to have received an Award of Science and Maths Excellence this year. The awards programme is organised by Discover Science and Engineering with the objective to promote the physical sciences and a positive attitude to careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The six plaques, dating back to 2006, marking the pupils’ participation in this very worthy programme are proudly displayed on the wall at the School Hall. Enjoy the video showing some of last year’s experiments.



An 'award winning' school garden does not just 'spring up over night' and while the labours of all those involved are usually seen in the late Spring to early Summer the work is year round.

In Spring 2013 the girls in Mr. Whelan's class rolled their sleeves up and did a lot of 'donkey work' outside under Ms. Mullin's direction. Meantime, in doors, Ms. Dempsey's class were planting different herbs that will be a great addition to the vegetables already planted outside.

Over the Easter break, the men from the SEFRC delivered 'vegetable boxes' that allowed our green fingered pupils plant an even greater selection of plants. Roll on 'harvest time.'
