To commemorate the centenary of the 1916 Rising we held a ceremony in the school. The children sang songs, played music and presented a dramatic piece as Gaeilge about those involved in the Rising. Members of the school community had an opportunity to view art work and projects completed by the children. We then moved outside where proclamations old and new were read out and Mrs Slowey raised our flag. It is a day we will remember for many years to come. Many thanks to all those who attended.
As part of Confirmation preparation the Senior class visited Drumbear Nursing Home. They read poetry, sang songs and played music. It was a lovely way to finish the term.
Mrs Coll's class have been taking part in the Junior Achievers programme. In these pictures they are learning about the difference between making a pen individually and working on a production line. Definitely shows how fun learning can be!!
Bhain na páistí an taitneamh as Seachtain na Gaeilge i mbliana. Rinneamar Ceilí, Tráth na gCéist, Biongó, Damhsa Gaelach srl. Bhí sé go hiontach!
Many thanks to Aidan Mc Quaid who is currently training 5th and 6th class boys and girls for an upcoming soccer tournament.
First and Second Class made buns while learning about weight in Maths with Mrs Finnegan. They were kind enough to share the buns with everyone!
Junior Infants to Second Class went to the Garage Theatre to see a wonderful play called 'Monday's Child'. The play was about a lady with Alzheimer's and a little girl who becomes her friend.
We participated in the Food Dudes initiative which provided the children with fruit and vegetables each day. They were rewarded for their efforts with prizes. We are now on the second phase and the children are bringing in fruit and vegetables from home to gain certificates.
During Friendship Week we all tried to be kinder to each other. The children made friendship bracelets, worked on a positivity tree and many other activities. It was a great week.
