As part of the Green School Initiative, a big travel challenge was held. Pupils participated in a Park and Stride Project to raise awareness of walking as an environmentally friendly way to travel to school. Well done to everybody who participated in park and stride, car pooling and walking.
We were delighted to have some beautiful animals to visit us on March 21st. Thanks to Billy who organised this very exciting event.
We were delighted to have Mayor Stephen Keary visit the school during tree week. The mayor planted a beautiful oak tree on the school grounds and a commemorative plaque records the event for the future. The children were delighted to receive a gift of a tree that they can plant and care for at home.
The children decided to show their appreciation for their mothers and made some beautiful cards.
Students used their creativity to make some beautiful Valentine’s Day cards and crafts.
Thanks to the local GAA club who visited our school to display the trophies which they won recently. It was a magnificient afternoon and we were delighted to welcome back many of our past pupils. Congratulations.
Thanks to everybody who supported the annual Christmas Shoe-box appeal. The children brought in beautiful gifts which are making their way to children in need in other countries.
Children from first, second and third spent an afternoon exploring materials in our environment.
