Discover Primary Science and Maths
Discover Primary Science and Maths Award of Excellence is issued to schools who achieve a high standard in teaching and learning in Science and Maths. The emphasis in the program is on active learning and supports strong integration between Science and the Maths curriculum.
Some of the investigations this year have been based on light and sound. The pupils really have enjoyed exploring and learning about these topics. We are also monitoring the weather for signs of spring and recording daily temperatures.
We will continue with our enquiry based learning and hope to achieve this standard of excellence this school year.

Active Schools Award
At Canal Way ETNS we have placed a strong emphasis on keeping fit and healthy. To support our work we have registered with the Active Schools Award program.
This has formed links with programs such as ‘Bizzy Breaks’ from the Irish Heart Foundation. We strive to keep children as active as possible during the school day.
Canal Way ensures that all children access the PE curriculum and integrate PE with as many other subject areas as possible.
We encourage active travel to and from school.
