Though we do not subscribe to much eastern mysticism, we do admit that the old ‘yin yang‘ theory tends to work out: things do seem to find a balance, on a whole, given time. For example, last week we in the Senior School hosted two lovely (honestly!) inspectors from the Department of Education and Skills but the Junior School hosted a few guests from the Department of Agriculture and Life who were even cuter and cuddlier than the cigiri. Cecilia, the equally cuddly czar of our Pre- and After-School Programme, took the initiative with this ‘Eggs to Chickens’ project and to be honest, over our long association with this school, we have never seen anything bring as much excitement and joy to St. Conleth’s. And that was just in the staffroom!
Cecilia is in charge but she has enlisted the help of all the Junior School staff (especially night nurses, Ms. Kelly and Tom) as well as the eager little hands of the Junior School Pupils, as everyone has watched, charted and documented the progress from warm, little eggs to vibrating balls of fluff to rampaging little T-Rexes! Now we all await the final transformation to Frank’s Hot Wings… just kidding! The science behind the project has been fascinating and you can see some of the many associated student projects above, as well as the many smiles (above and below) that this venture has brought to St. Conleth’s, just when we really needed it!
