Yes we Canning!

Today was Galway Jersey Day in Belmont N.S. This was in support of Galway’s quest for the All-Ireland Senior Hurling title on Sunday! Every child who participated also brought in a donation of €2 for local girl Lisa Courtney who is going to work in an orphanage in Burma. This is a very worthy cause. All of the children looked wonderful!

Summer Reading Challenge

Well done to all the children who completed the library challenge in Tuam Library over the Summer holidays.Reading is a wonderful pastime and there is a wide selection of interesting books to choose from. Each child had to read six books and after they read each book they got a stamp on their record sheet. When they got six stamps they were invited to a party in the library where they received a beautiful certificate and a medal. The research is clear that children become good readers by being turned on to the enjoyment of books, a process that begins at birth. So well done to the mammies and daddies who brought their children to the library to take part in this brilliant initiative.

Something Fishy!

 

 

 

 

Seán Nestor from Milltown Angling Club visited the school on Monday with a brown trout and a wild salmon that he caught locally. He dissected the fish and showed the air sack, liver and heart to the children. They even felt the teeth and tongue. He told them about the life of the salmon. He also showed the children the different flies that he uses to catch the salmon.

On Tuesday Nuala and the children in 5th and 6th classes helped to prepare the fish. They baked the trout and grilled the salmon. As an accompaniment they also had carrots, parsnips and peas from the garden.
