We experimented with sound today. Increasing amounts of water were poured into eight different bottles.
We learned that sound is a wave which vibrates the air inside the bottle.
The more air in the bottle the deeper the sound!
These bottle pipes make nice musical instruments.

The launch of Peter Alley’s book ‘My Way’ takes place at Dundrum House Hotel this Sunday, 17th November at 3.00pm. The book promises to be a great read.
Peter was the director of Open Air Oklahoma in 2010 when many of our children and their parents were actively involved in the show. He was also heavily involved in the Millenium pageant which was held in the parish.
We would encourage you all to attend this special event if you’re free. Peter sent an open invitation to all associated with the school.
Athletics training continues this Wednesday after school for 3rd – 6th Class in the Denis Leamy Centre from 3.10pm to 4.00pm. Please remember to bring a piece of fruit and a one litre bottle of water to the session.
