On Thursday 27th February, the Junior room took part in a Spring nature walk spotting and identifying various items on their check lists.
As part of our SPHE programme we received a visit from Community Gardai to discuss relevant topics such as cyber bullying, staying safe online and making good choices.
Fiona from the Road Safety Authority also dropped in to complete a road safety workshop with all the students.
Both the Senior and Junior rooms enjoyed flipping and sampling pancakes for Pancake Tuesday.
All the children in the school took part in a six week gymnastics programme with Kool School.
On Thursday 13th February the Senior and Junior rooms gathered in the hall for a gymnastics display for the parents.
A huge thanks to Karen for doing such excellent work with the children. It was amazing to see how much the children picked up in such a short space of time.
For the month of January, the school explored the theme of China through SESE and Aistear.
We had a Chinese food tasting day and children from both the Junior and Senior rooms presented projects on different aspects of Chinese culture and history.
The children put on a fantastic Variety Show this year for our end of year Christmas show, with original sketches, singing, comedy and their own unique take on the Nativity. A great night was had by all!
Many thanks as ever to Gillian for all her hard work with the children, and to everyone who donated for our Christmas hampers and took part in the raffle. Your contributions are greatly valued.
Happy Christmas and we will see you all again in the new year!
On the 21st November we had the Lismore mobile scientists in our school. All children participated in a Science Workshop.
The Senior Room was transformed into a crime scene as the children had to use evidence to solve a crime. They engaged in chromatography experiments, extracted their DNA and investigated fingerprints.
With the Lismore mobile scientists the Junior Room explored survival in the Antarctic. They learned how some animals use blubber to keep themselves warm in cold climates.
They also made snowstorms in a jar. All the children really enjoyed the hands on activities and learning.
