Though the actual setting was the gymnasium of St. Rose of Lima School, Freehold, the scenario for one day resembled a museum where visitors intently read information and asked questions as they studied the displays before them.

The subjects of interest donned in the school’s recent art gallery and science fair, showcased the various creative works of the student body.

While art displays and science fairs are popular events in just about any school, the art gallery in St. Rose of Lima School featured the works of students in PreK through eighth grade. Under the guidance of art teacher, Emanuele Iosue, who is also a graduate of St. Rose of Lima School, the students were invited to submit four art pieces they created during the past school year that they considered outstanding. Colorful drawings, three dimensional cut-outs are among the examples.

Students in grades three through five had a chance to revisit an age-old tradition of hosting a science fair in which they explored questions about the many categories of science ranging from earth science to microbiology. Their work involved developing a question and forming a hypothesis, then proceeding to research and collect data and lastly, using their information to draw a conclusion.

At the end of the event, students were awarded certificates and ribbons recognizing them for their efforts.

School officials cited that the students did “an exemplary job of demonstrating that science is everywhere and ever-changing,” not to mention “they quickly realized in a fun and exciting way that to question the ‘why’ of something is an important segue in knowledge and learning.”
