Gallen CS in Ferbane won the judges award at the second level finals of the VEX Robotics competition in Cork recently.
This award was testament to the strength of relationships that have been built up between Calum Corcoran, Darragh Mannion, Fionn Claffey, Jake Maher, Jenna Hesketh, Matthew Flaherty, Molly Wheeler and Sheola Rosney through hundreds of hours working together on this project. Judges commented so positively on the trust and belief the group had in each other. Massive thanks to Ms. Shine and Eoin Lally for their work with the group and the huge support of Offaly County Council.
The Judges Award is presented to a team that the Judges determine is deserving of special recognition. Judges consider a number of possible criteria for this award, such as team displays of special attributes, exemplary effort and perseverance at the event, or team accomplishments or endeavors throughout the season that may not fit under existing awards but are nonetheless deserving of special recognition.
Although the dream to compete in Dallas at the world finals was not to be for us this year. We would like to take this opportunity to wish Tubber NS and High Street NS all the best as they represent Offaly on the Global stage later this year in the Primary school finals.
