We received fantastic news this week that three of our students from 4th Class have qualified for the National Finals of the Bebras Challenge, which will be held in Maynooth University on April 21st. Only 118 children in total have reached this final Stage from a massive 5,700 participants.
This is an outstanding achievement for Kate Buckley, Sophie Frizzell and Ethel Duffy and we are so proud of them in our school.
Bebras involves using computational and abstract thinking to solve interactive tasks online. The task was to solve 15 exciting yet difficult problems in 45 minutes. It is run in over 40 countries in the world. There were four different categories linked with age groups. Castors (8-10 Years), Benjamin (10-12 years), Cadet (12-14 years) and Junior (14-16 years). https://bebras.techweek.ie/
Well done to every single student from 4th to 6th class who took took part and who showed amazing levels of patience, concentration and ability in solving the tasks.
We wish Kate, Ethel and Sophie every success in the upcoming National Finals!!
