P6 Parents

Dear Parent/Guardian,

We are delighted to offer our P6 pupils the opportunity this Wednesday, 16th June, to take part in a “Virtual Science Class” with scientists from Dundalk Institute of Technology, (DKIT).

Excitingly a “lab in a box” will be delivered to school on Wednesday morning for pupils to carry out activities under the direction of DKIT scientists virtually!! These activities will focus on water quality and conservation.

Normally delivered as a science out reach project, this year because of Covid restrictions, the programme has been developed to be delivered virtually. Therefore, researchers working at DKIT are interested in your child’s opinion and views on the programme and have asked that pupils complete a short online questionnaire before and after the delivery of the workshop. They have issued us with letters and consent forms for pupils to take part, these will be given out tomorrow and must be back Wednesday morning.

This is a super opportunity for our P6 pupils to work with both scientists and researchers!

Thank you in advance for your co-operation signing and returning consent forms,

Miss Mulkerns + Miss Crawley
