Class 8-51, together with their science teacher Mrs Tracy O’Hare and classroom assistant Mrs Anne McElroy, attended a Guinness World Record attempt in the Odessy Arena, Belfast on Tuesday 24th February.

They were with Primary and Secondary school children from schools across Northern Ireland who gathered together to take part in a massive enquiry-based lesson and try their hand at solving a “crime” using science.

This was organised by the Royal Society of Chemistry and the British Council as part of the inaugural Northern Ireland Science Festival, an 11-day festival, taking place from 19 February to 1 March.

There were 29 schools represented, and according to Official Guinness World Records Adjudicator Pravin Patel, St Paul’s students set a new record, with 1,339 students participating – some way ahead of the previous mark of 982.

Well done to all involved, and congratulations to 8-51, our Guinness World Record Breakers.
