This year 4th, 5th and 6th Class participated in the Blue Star Programme.
The Blue Star Programme is an education initiative for primary school pupils across Ireland. The idea of the Programme is simple: to foster better understanding and knowledge of the European Union and how it affects the lives of Irish citizens among primary pupils through classroom projects and activities. Despite school closures, we reached all the criteria and have received our Certificate.

Wishing all our staff, students, parents and the community a very Happy Christmas. We look forward to seeing everyone on the 6th of January. Stay safe.

Christmas is always a lovely time in our school. Although this year was like no other, we still tried to keep it as normal as possible. Each class recorded their Christmas Show and it was shared with parents. Of course, we painted the windows and carried out some lovely art.

Science Week was held from the 8th to the 15th of November 2020. Junior, Senior and 1st Class saved the day by making sure the little pig had somewhere safe to go. We were very lucky to be selected as one of the few schools to receive Edison Robots. These robots incorporate programming and coding which the pupils really enjoyed. The students really enjoyed using them. Finally, 4th, 5th and 6th Class had a competition to see which group could make the tallest free-standing object using marshmallows and spaghetti.

We made the most of Halloween with all our art work! Junior, Senior and 1st class made lovely skeletons and some scarecrows. 1st and 2nd Class used some clay to create their monsters and they also wrote a poem to go with it. 4th, 5th and 6th Class were learning all about Dia De Los Muertos and did some sugar skull printing. Have a look at some examples of our work

We had great fun in the lead up to Halloween. During the week, we had a Halloween Scavenger Hunt which everyone enjoyed! As always, we had our dress up day on Friday. Everyone made a huge effort and had a great day!

As always, Maths Week was a great success! It was held from the 10th to the 18th of October. Junior, Senior and 1st class worked on their patterns and shapes. The Senior Room worked on tessellation, brainteasers and riddles. Their art lesson was based on lines and angles.
