For the past two years, our school has been working on the theme of Energy in our Green-Schools Programme. Today, we were awarded a new Green Flag for our work on the programme. Two members of our Green-School committee, Layla Nibbs and Thomas Bell, collected the flag with Mrs. Stenson and Ms. Donohoe. Well Done everyone!

Junior Infants went for their first ever Maths trail last Friday!

It was so much fun! We found numbers and colours, shapes and all kinds of maths things!!

We visited the school garden on the way stopping to smell the herbs from the garden!

We looked out for signs of autumn too!  We saw leaves falling and the tress bare. We love Maths and Autumn

Work in the Garden

We have been very busy preparing our school garden for the summer under the direction of Ms. Gillespie! The Gardening Committee and the boys from The Plazas have been weeding, planting and watering. The Gardening Committee and 6th Class painted labels and drawings on to the wooden bedding surrounds to make them look pretty. 3rd/4th Class helped Shailagh Healy to construct an Insect Hotel to attract mini-beasts in to the garden and Michael Bell talked to 1st Class and 5th Class about mini-beasts and birds we might spot in our garden. Well done everybody!!! The garden looks so pretty in the sunny weather!

Did you know that children need an hour of moderate exercise every day? The message from Get Ireland Active is to get up and get sweaty. It’s good for you!

After all our hard work these last two days, we took some time out to read our library books under the warm sun in the outdoor classroom.
