Battery Collection

Well done to all the children and parents for collecting 12 boxes of batteries for recycling, in aid of the “Laura Lynn Foundation.” This is a very worthy cause as it helps terminally ill children. Remember, our battery collection is ongoing throughout the year, so keep filling your blue boxes. 

Thank You,

Ms Rigney and the Green Committee

Lá Glas

We really enjoyed “Lá Glas” today. 

Ms  Rigney’s 5th class read a novel as Gaeilge a few weeks ago. 

Mrs  Conway wrote a drama based on the book, and we performed it today. It was called  “An nathair agus Na Spéaclaí.” We really enjoyed it! It was great fun. 

Each class performed a “cluiche clós” or a “playground game.” 


Mr . Glennon : Caith agus Síos 

Ms . Dooley : A Gharda , A Gharda 

Mr . Keller : Chuaigh Mamó chun an tsiopa 

Ms . Egan & Mrs .Finn : Teidí  Béar      

Mrs.Dunne :  Ceann, gulalainn, glúin is cos

Mrs. O Connell : Isteach is amach trí na cloginí gorma

Ms . Quigley : Taobh le chéile 

Ms. Payne : Míonna na Bliana 

Mr . Dolan : Téigh abhaile 

                      Míonna na Bliana


Then our school band, “Banna Ceoil “,  played some traditional Irish tunes . They were excellent ! 

Five girls did some Irish dancing.

We would like to wish you all a very “Happy St . Patricks Day ”

“Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig daoibh go léir” 

Slán libh!

An engineer for a day!


In school we were being engineer’s .We had to construct a tower that would be stable during an earthquake. We had to make the tower out of marshmallows and spaghetti .We were put into groups to see who would make the tallest structure.It was more difficult than we thought it would be.The tallest was 56 centimetres tall and it’s stayed standing during the earthquake.After making the structures we got to eat all the marshmallows. It was a very fun subject to do.

Have a look at us in action!

Valentine’s Day

Published by under 5th & 6th Class,Infants

Ms Egan’s Senior Infants made pots out of clay last Thursday 9th February. Mr Glennon and his 5th class students helped them. Some of the children made heart shaped pots. The next day, the Infants painted the pots. Today they put pink crepe paper inside their pots. Ms Egan gave five mini eggs and five love hearts to each child. They then filled their pots with these. Hopefully the sweets will make it as far as the parents! The children will bring home their pots at 2 O’Clock today. Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day so they will give the pots to their parents. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Have a look at our photostory!
