Huge thank you to The Tidy Town Committee for the Pollinator Friendly Sign and the wonderful bug/bee hotel! We hope the bees will like our lovely flowers!
Animation Workshop and TY Showcase their Project
We welcomed Therese to our school to enhance our ability in using the Stop Motion Studio! The children came up with some great animations. Well done to all!
We also enjoyed a very fun and informative presentation from TY students on the effects of too much time on Technology! They have set us a challenge to cut down on our devices and we accept this challenge! They will be back in a few weeks to ensure we have tried our best to do other activities in order to minimise our screen time.
Meeting the Author Helena Duggan
Thank you so much to Coláiste Bhríde for organising our visit to meet author of our class novel “A Place Called Perfect.” It was great to meet Helena and ask her some interesting questions to learn more on how an author gets their ideas for a book and how to can organise publication. We look forward to reading the rest of the books in her series.
Active School’s Week
We recently enjoyed celebrating Active School’s Week. We played badminton, table tennis, rugby, soccer, yoga and some good old fun indoor/outdoor games. Thank you to the Senior Room students for making and setting up games for the junior room to enjoy!
Tinahely Courthouse Project
Many thanks to Tinahely Courthouse for running an amazing workshop with the children. They designed a collaborative art project, recorded music and played with shadows! The process was great fun and we are delighted with how it all turned out! Just take a look at our creativity!
Tree Day in Glendalough
1st – 6th Class enjoyed a lovely day in Glendalough as part of National Tree Day! What a day we had for it. We enjoyed a treasure hunt, stick puzzles, ice-cream and some plain fun beside the lake. Thank you to everyone in Glendalough for the super activities they had planned for us.
If you haven’t been to Glendalough recently make sure you get there on a bright, sunny day. Just check out these lovely pictures!
The Children had great fun before the Easter Holidays. We have a Great Irish Bake Off to raise money for the Children’s Health Foundation. Well done and thank you to Ms Kiersey for baking Easter buns with the whole school! The children were delighted with their Easter Eggs. Thank you to Candy’s for sponsoring some of the eggs!! It is really appreciated.

We can’t wait for our next visit and can’t wait to see what happens next – are there really ghosts in the Ghost Estate?
