New Ebook resource created for Science

The first in a series of three ebooks created by Our Lady’s Grove students for their younger peers is now available. This project has been ongoing for over a year. A huge thanks needs to go to those students who invested so much time and effort last year. A new group have now taken on the task and we are looking forward to further publications in the near future.
