SFX Senior School are currently partnering with Alexion Pharmaceuticals Ireland (based in College Park, Dublin 15) to deliver a maths programme to the pupils in 5th and 6th classes.
This programme engages pupils of all abilities in creative, analytical and lateral thinking skills over a 6-week period. A unique opportunity for our school, this is the first partnership of its kind in Dublin.
This project has been co-ordinated by SAM (Sense About Maths) which provides companies the opportunity to invest in the future by working alongside schools in their area. As volunteers from these companies work in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) careers themselves, they also assist children in visualising themselves having careers in these areas and build confidence in their capacity to achieve this. We are delighted to be the first school in Dublin to participate in this project and to partner with Alexion Ireland.
