Our Lady of Lourdes RC School
We are Our Lady of Lourdes RC School in Shotton Colliery. We love science in our school, and we really enjoy doing practical work even more! We would really like to secure funding in order to expand the science equipment that we have in our school so that we can take part in even more experiments and demonstrations. We think that getting more equipment, such as microscopes and slide samples, will allow us to learn in new and innovative ways. We can explore and test our learning in a wider variety of practical settings and experiments.
In addition to using any new equipment in lessons, we would also use it in extra-curricular settings. Our Science Clubs have always been well attended and popular with children across the school, and having more equipment means that we can take part in even more sessions, so that any new equipment would be used widely across our school to have the maximum impact. We could potentially open our school to groups in our community (e.g. cadet and scout groups) that wish to use our science equipment, meaning that the impact would stretch beyond the members of our school. This would help our local community to be united in a shared love of science learning.
Thank you for taking the time to read our application.
