Energy Awareness Week

Last week was Energy Awareness Week in our school. The next Green-School Flag we are working towards requires us to make greater efforts to conserve energy at school and at home by turning off lights, closing doors, turning off taps, walking to school when we can etc. All classes participated in workshops with Martina Butler from the Heritage Council, school and home energy audits, ‘WOW’ Day, quizzes, poster competitions etc. By the end of the week, it was clear to everybody that we all CAN change our bad habits in to good habits! Well Done everybody and keep up the good work!

The Big Blue Box Challenge

Some 4th class children got to visit The Bank of Ireland today to receive their certificates for taking part in The St. Vincent De Paul / Bank of Ireland Big Blue Box Volunteer Challenge.

For the challenge cyclists are making their way down the west coast of Ireland, along the ‘Wild Atlantic Way’, collecting mementos in towns they visit along the way. They are also,most  importantly, raising money for a great cause.

Children from 4th and 6th classes in our school got a feeling for the distance that these cyclists will cover by running team laps of our school last week. In total the children ran 99km!

Today the children from 4th class who participated got to collect their certificates, have their faces painted, enjoy some treats and very importantly they got to cheer on the cyclists who were departing on the next leg of their tour to Ballina, Co. Mayo.

We wish them the best of luck 🙂

Sport for LIFE

3rd Class, 3rd/4th Class, Active School Flag, Miss Travers' Class, Ms. Donohoe's Class, P.E, S.P.H.E, Science  Tagged , , , , , , , No Comments »

Children from Ms. Travers’ 3rd Class and Ms. Donohoe’s 3rd/4th Class have been participating in a Sport for LIFE programme. This programme gives children knowledge of how their body works and how best to take care of it through fun activities. For example we have learned all about the Food Pyramid, how our heart works, our muscle names and locations etc. Today we went to the I.T to meet other schools who also participated and to play some of the activities together again. We even got free t-shirts and a certificate for our school! Teachers can now teach the programme to other classes too!  Thank you to all of the Sport for LIFE facilitators. We have had great fun!
