Second Class Visit to Amazon
Room 10 were delighted to be invited to the opening of the new Amazon Web Services Building on Burlington Road on Monday 18th June. The children saw an interactive 3D show which showcased many digital technologies that Amazon are currently working on. They were then taken around the new state of the art building. They engaged in an entertaining workshop using Alexa technology and had the expertise of many Amazon staff members to help them.  The children really enjoyed the experience and the skills they learned will support them with their STEM work. TV3 filmed the event and the children all received badges and goodie bags for their efforts.

Tech Week took place from 23rd to 29th April and St. Kilian's JNS got involved in the competition on Digitalartweek.com. The children visited the site with their teachers, using their interactive whiteboard.  They watched the video posted by artist Lorraine Fenlon. They responded to her art work by producing their own interpretation of her lighthouse. A winner was selected in each class and each winner will receive their digital art certificate and prize at assembly in early May.
The class winners were :
Room 1 - Mya Fantham: Room 2 - Paige Donnelly: Room 5- David O'Hara: Room 6 Nancy Jane Hanlon: Room 7 - Jack Gleeson:
Room 9 - Ruby O'Keefe:  Room 10 - Charlotte Walsh:  Room 11 - Ricki Swift: Room 15 - Sam Meehan:  Room 16 - Aidan Baker
