Lego Learning

TY Lego Step Programme – Learn to Learn

Some of our T.Y students have been trained up as LEGO Mentors who lead and deliver sessions to new students coming into First Year and assist with the transition between schools.

Key Objectives / Expected Outcomes:

  1. To allow primary school students become more confident during the transition from primary to secondary school by attending LEGO sessions at their new school.
  2. To give students access to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects in a fun and interactive way through the medium of LEGO.

Recently students  from Scoil Aonghusa Primary School along with their teachers attended a Lego session in our school.  All students found it to be a very enjoyable and educational experience.  A big thank you to all  involved .
