A Real Rockett Scientist

You know the old joke, of course, but at Saint Conleth’s we actually do have a Rocket scientist, namely in the person of Stephen Rockett, our First Year, who recently won Second Place in the category of Junior Life Sciences at the recent SciFest at Blanchardstown IT for his project, The Effect of Caffeine and Sugar on the Growth of Pea Plants. Stephen did very well against some stiff competition, most of whom were from older grades.  We already knew well about the hard work, impeccable manners and honest intellectual interest of Stephen (and his Third Year brother Matthew), but it is great to see recognition on a national stage.  Well done to Stephen and Science gurus Ms. Phelan and Mr. Callaghan!
