As part of Saint Pius X College's closing 50th anniversary celebrations, thirty four Year 8 students visited Saint Mary's College, Derry at the request of its principal, Mrs Marie Lindsay, to showcase their range of completed tasks based on the various non-fiction science books that the students have been reading since March of this year. This event, hosted by Saint Mary’s Head of English, Mrs Sinead O’ Connor and Literacy Co-ordinator, Mrs Ann Green, was a direct result of the students involvement in Project 500 in continued collaboration with QUB and Dr Ruth Jarman and in conjunction with Miss Pat Hanson [Head of Science], Mr Ciaran Quinn [Literacy Co-ordinator], Mrs Alice McCann [College Librarian] and Mrs Emma Mc Glone [Science Technician].

The key purpose of the project was to encourage students to read a range of science books for enjoyment and to simultaneously create and manage their own tasks based on this reading. The students presented a range of activities such as pod-casts, power-points, bookmarks, fact files, paper engineering, pop-up charts, games and book reviews revealing their own personal interpretation of their chosen texts. A very enjoyable day was had by all with Mrs Lindsay presenting a range of prizes for the most interesting scientific fact, best model, best game and overall best project and runner up.
