Lego Competition 2015

At the beginning of the school year, Ms Brophy set each class the task of building their ideal neighbourhood out of Lego. The boys in each class began to creating plans and drawing up their ideas. They then worked in teams to create different elements of the design.

The judging took place on the 17th December 2015. Representatives from each class spoke to the judges about their design and the work involved in creating it. Competition was extremely tight and the judges had an unenviable undertaking in choosing a winner.

After much deliberation, the winners were announced at assembly. Ms Barry’s Class in room 4 were junior winners, Mr Hannigan's Class in room 9 were senior winners.


Here are the amazing designs from room 4 and from room 9.

Well done boys!!!







In December 2013,  the school was excited to receive a donation of a large box of Lego.

These Lego supplies were kindly donated by Michael Renvillard of the Lego Foundation in Denmark. Each class received a supply of all different types of Lego. The boys were delighted and set to work building all types of creative structures. Rainy lunchtimes were transformed!

The report in the Nenagh Guardian
At the beginning of the Spring term, Ms Brophy set each class the task of building their ideal school out of Lego. The boys set to work creating plans and drawing up their ideas. They then worked in teams to create different elements of the design.

The judging took place on the final day of term. Representatives from each class spoke to three separate judges about their design and the work involved in creating it. Competition was fierce and the judges had a tough task to select a winner.

After much deliberation, the winners were announced at assembly. Ms Liston's Class in room 1 were junior winners, Mr O'Sullivan's Class in room 9 were senior winners and Ms Callinan's Class in room 6 received a prize for most creative school.

Take a look below at the amazing designs.

Nathan Ryan, Dónal Coffey and Ben Casey wrote about their school.

At the beginning, we had the whole class working on the school but that didn't work so we made groups of three and that worked out. We put in our Green Flags, a playground, a classroom, a bus, a storeroom, a statue, a G.P. Room, an archway entrance, a bathroom with a soap dispenser. We also put security cameras, a bird basin, a fire alarm and a cafeteria. In the science room, it looks like they're making crystals. In the G.P. Room, the students are playing basketball. In the music room there is a concert. In the storeroom someone is sleeping on the job! (maybe because of all the hard work) In the cafeteria the worker is getting ready for when the hungry students come in. The Principal is monitoring the empty detention room. Someone is skipping detention! Every student has no homework. The sleepwalking secretary is monitoring the empty hallway. A student is getting a ball from a tree.

Everyone in our class helped to construct our Lego ideal school.
