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!

By Ava Warby and Saoirse Murphy, 5th Class

St Patrick’s Week

Published by under 1st & 2nd Class

This week the children have been preparing for St Patrick’s Day. In groups, they made posters of the facts they have been learning about St Patrick. They painted the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow which we all decided a trip to Florida would suffice if we ever found it. The children in second class also did some work on persuasive language on topics such as ‘children should have a longer break time in school’. This was a statement we all agreed on and 2nd class had some very convincing points to make.
