Maths Morning Success

All the children in the school took part in Monthly Monday Maths morning. The children in the Junior room had five mammies who helped them to play the games. They really enjoyed it.

The Not-so-Jolly Postman

In their Drama lesson today the children in Junior and Senior Infants helped the postman to deliver letters. He was afraid of Miss Woof’s dog and asked the children to visit her to explain why the Postman wasn’t delivering to her door. She agreed to tie the dog up. The Postman was very happy then. Unfortunately, he was late delivering the letters so the children agreed to help him. Take a look at the pictures below to see them at work.

Arty Infants

The children in Junior and Senior Infants have been very busy printing poppies using different materials. They looked at Monet’s ‘Poppies’ and tried to recreate it.
In Geography, they learned about the sun, moon and stars. Did you know that the sun is the brightest star in the sky! They learned about travelling to the ‘Smart Planet’ where energy is saved every day in new and interesting ways.
Then, they made beautiful space pictures using tinfoil.
I think you’ll agree they are very talented.

School News

The school has availed of a water conservation grant to upgrade the girls and teachers’ toilet. They are now installed with dual flush toilets and push taps. We have hot water in all the toilets and the classrooms have also been fitted with push taps.

We are in the process of installing Interactive Whiteboards in the Middle and Senior room. One of the old blackboards will be getting a new lease of life and you will be surprised at it’s new position. Keep a look out! These whiteboards cost a lot of money so we will be fundraising in earnest very soon and we welcome all help!!!

The General room/ Staff room has been kitted out with new shelves to store books and teaching resources. A welcome addition to help us keep our school ship shape and tidy.
