On the 11th of April, 14 schools around the area went to Clifden Town Hall for a science fair run by Declan Holmes. Leenane N.S (aka; us) did a project on ‘why does salt melt ice’. There were no places eg; 1st 2nd 3rd but each school were given a certificate with the name of the school and saying congratulations. If you were wondering why salt melts ice it’s because it lowers the freezing point of water.
The pupils at Leenane national school went to the shore in Leenane to collect fish. The pupils collected many types of fish. Like Sand hoppers Sand gobeys and Crabs lots and lots of Crabs Small crabs and big crabs. After a while of searching for fish the pupils let the fish go. It was a great day.
