Congratulations to our engineers and computer programmers from 6th Class who brought great glory to Scoil Phádraig Naofa with their success in Carlow IT at the regional finals of the VEX Challenge. The VEX Robotics Competition  is a robotics competition that requires teams to design, build, and program robots to compete at tournaments. Our team of Luke Fanning, Kamil Lazerek, Josh Jacob and Cillian Kelly won the overall tournament, beating off competition from 16 other schools and Luke Fanning claimed 2nd place in the individual drivers challenge. This is a phenomenal achievement for the boys, Scoil Phádraig Naofa and their mentor Mr. Dunne. Some links to local newspaper coverage of the event and we look forward to sharing more details of the event with the school community once we return .
