Yesterday was a very enjoyable and relaxing day in school, as we participated in a sound magic and mindfulness class which was led by Kasia and Lukasz from www.soundmagicireland.com.
We got the chance to experience the sounds of lots of cool instruments including Tibetan singling bowls, gongs, chimes, bells and drums.
We found the class very relaxing and refreshing, so much so that some of us even nodded off during it!
We had a very enjoyable morning in school today. We were all so excited when our teachers told us that we would be doing an Easter egg treasure hunt!
In teams of two and three, we set off around the school grounds, following a trail of clues, hoping they would lead us to an array of Easter eggs!
To our delight the clues led us to a room full of hidden Easter eggs, where we were each given a time limit to find one!
We thoroughly enjoyed the treasure hunt and are looking forward to our Easter holidays.
Wishing you all a very happy and enjoyable Easter!
This morning, we had a surprise visit from Dave Donoghue of Kaizen Guitar.
Dave is organising a ‘Guitarathon’, which he hopes will break a Guinness world record for the longest guitar lesson in the world. The Guitarathon will begin on Friday the 14th of April at 9am in Munroes, Galway, and will last for 24 hours. It will consist of 24 different 1-hour themed classes. Dave says that all are welcome, including complete beginners. Booking is essential and can be booked via www.kaizenguitar.com. All proceeds will go to Jigsaw Galway.
During Dave’s visit, he played a couple of tunes for us on the guitar, which we were delighted to sing along to.
We really enjoyed his visit and some of us are hoping to take part in the guitarathon and feature in the next Guinness Book of World Records!
Thank you and best of luck to Dave with his fantastic event.
Congratulations to Isabelle, one of our sixth class students, who took part in the Mayo final of the Easons Spelling Bee competition in Castlebar yesterday.
Out of the 27 schools from across county Mayo that took part, Isabelle came in an incredible 2nd place. This is a fantastic achievement and we are all extremely proud of her.
Well done Isabelle!
This year we have started a new initiative in our school – ‘Student of the Month’, which is aimed at encouraging a hard-working, helpful and positive atmosphere in our school.
This is a monthly award which will be presented to one chosen pupil at the end of each month.
The award will be presented to the pupil who is working the hardest, always trying their best, displaying kind and helpful behaviour, being polite and mannerly towards others and who helps to create a happy and positive atmosphere around our school on a daily basis.
This month we have chosen Jonathan as our ‘Student of the Month’. Jonathan received a medal for his wonderful achievement and was presented with the ‘Student of the Month’ trophy which he will display on his desk for the month of April.
Congratulations and well done to Jonathan on his well deserved award!
