Last Wednesday we had our graduation mass, it was a very emotional experience. Afterwards we enjoyed a barbeque and it was delicious. We had chips and burgers. After the tasty meal, we had ice-cream. Thanks to Ms Dooley, Ms Killeen, Ms Conway, Mr Nolan and Mrs Fitzgerard that made this possible. Here are some photos of us in 6th class, Cornafulla NS

Scratch Programming 5th class

Over the past 6 weeks we have taken part in computer classes with Ms. Killeen.

We started off learning about Microsoft word and all the features that go with it.

Then we started scratch programming. We really enjoyed designing our own games and Geography quizzes.

We learned how to programme our characters (sprites) and how to make them do different tasks like jumping up and down on a trampoline.

We look forward to learning more about scratch in the future. 

By Oisin, Roisin and Ella (Ms.Rigney’s fifth class)

These are some links to our projects which test your geography knowledge… We hope you enjoy them!

Elisha from Trócaire visited our school today. She spoke to the children from 2nd – 6th Class about the work Trócaire does across the world. We did some activities about climate change and global warming. The Green School Committee presented Elisha with a cheque for 262 euro which the whole school raised at our Bun Sale last week.

Thanks again,

Ms Rigney
