Basketball Blitz

32 boys and girls from 5th and 6th class took part in a fun Basketball Blitz. This was held in the Mercy College Gym. The children enjoyed 2 hours of mini basketball games which were organised by some of our top Sligo basketball coaches. All of the teams were mixed so children played with students from a huge number of other schools. It was a hugely successful and enjoyable day for all.

Congratulations to all our students from 3rd- 6th class who played in Markievicz Park today. The boys made it to the final and just very narrowly missed out on lifting the cup by one point! All players did us so proud! Thank you also to all the parents and supporters that cheered us on. A great day was had! ???

Pretending to be Michaelangelo……

5th Class, Ms. Donohoe's Class, S.E.S.E  Tagged , , , No Comments »

We are learning about ‘The Renaissance’ in 5th Class. Michaelangelo was a sculptor and painter who lived in Italy during these times of new ideas in science, art, architecture.

Michaelangelo is famous for painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican City in Rome, Italy. All over this high ceiling he painted scenes from the Bible. He painted over three hundred people on the ceiling!!!!

Today in class we imagined that we were Michaelangelo painting a picture above our heads. We soon realised what an uncomfortable and tiring job he had but we all agreed his work was pretty amazing!

Thank-you to Bernard Joyce for facilitating Geography workshops with the children from 1st-5th class before Easter. The workshops were based on our Green-Schools theme of ‘Global Citizenship’. Activities included using maps and rope to create continent shapes, then placing country labels in their correct location. Below, the children are working with Bernard to outline the continent of Asia.
