Take a look at the amazing clay houses made and painted by the junior room!
On Friday the 13th of May, the senior room participated in the Cumann na mBunscol quarter final.
Despite our best efforts, we were unsuccessful against Facefield. However, we really enjoyed the game and wish Facefield the best of luck in the rest of the Cumann na mBunscol games.
The senior room recently planted beautiful summer flowers in our window boxes. They really add a splash of colour to our school.
Congratulations to the pupils in Second class who made their First Holy Communion on Sunday 15th May.
On Wednesday, the 4th of May we had a visit from a gymnastics instructor, who showed us how to do a range of gymnastics outside!
We had so much fun and really enjoyed learning all about gymnastics!
On Friday, the 6th of May we had a lovely visit from Kate Kelly, the author of the wonderful new book ‘Hayward’s Unexpected Adventure”.
We were fascinated as Kate told us all about hedgehogs and how they survive in the wild.
We were amazed to discover that the story itself is inspired by a real hedgehog who lives in a hedgerow in Kate’s garden!
We cannot wait to find out more about Hayward!
The senior room completed a PowerPoint presentation all about Japan. We discovered how wonderful and amazing Japan really is and some of us hope to visit there someday!

The girls played against Gortjordan, but were unsuccessful. However, everyone really enjoyed the day.
On Thursday 21st April, the senior room took part in the FAI Primary School 5’s. They played against Murrisk and Midfield. However, despite our best efforts we lost both matches, but thoroughly enjoyed the day.
The senior room recently completed a four week introduction to coding using the software Coderdojo.
We learned so much and really enjoyed working with code!
