Science was already an important part of the LN curriculum by the mid-20th Century. Senior girls could take Botany and Geology for the Leaving Certificate, and students would have been exposed to agriculture early on through the fruit orchards, veg plots and chickens and cows on school grounds. The late Sr Noni Mitchell IBVM was an accomplished and pioneering teacher of Science at LN in the 1960s.
In 2019, Agricultural Technology commenced as an elective for students, with the opening of a new Ag Plot!
