Sports Day

The boys and girls had a wonderful day at their Sports Day.

The sun came out and the sports field was a hive of activity with each class taking part in lots of different activities.

We saw lots of races- running, hurdles and relay. There was the novelty events- the egg and spoon race, wellie throwing and the sack races.

Some team sports were played- tag rugby, football, soccer and tug of war.

And of course the day wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the playground and some treats. Thanks to Sinéad and Fiona from Roche’s MACE/Applegreen who donated a Sport’s Day kit to the school and some treats for all the children.

What a busy term it has been for all the boys and girls in Fifth Class.

The children had a fantastic day out in UL show casing their investigation, can red cabbage be used as an indicator to show if a liquid is an acid or a base? Along with this they saw many science exhibitions and shows on all aspects of science. 

The children had a lego robotics workshop recently from Rob, who works with the Creative Hut. They learned how to input a code to operate their robot. The staff also received training on how to use the kits. The whole school look forward to using these kits in the future. The Board of Management recently purchased lego robotics kits for the school with funds from the STEM grant.

A Night at the Musicals

An event that will be remembered was held last week where the talented pupils of our school took to the stage for a magical night of music, drama, song and dance. What a night it was!

Our Junior and Senior Infants transported us into the magical world of Dr. Seuss.

First and Second Class treated us to some songs from the timeless tale; Oliver.

Third and Fourth class showcased their talents performing Matilda the Musical.

Finally Fifth and Sixth class entertained us with their wonderful take on Shrek the Musical.

We ended the night with a fabulous whole school performance of the Dermot Kennedy hit, Something to someone and Taylor Swifts, Shake it Off accompanied by pupils from Third to Sixth class and their Ukuleles.

We worked very hard to make this night the success that it was. Here are some pictures of our rehearsals.
