Our school had great fun celebrating Science Week... Mr Fallon's Class made a Diet Coke experiment and made lava lamps.
The two Sixth classes raised a lot of money at the Sweet Sale on the 21st October 2021 by selling treats and running competitions for the rest of the school. Thye presented their donations to their two chosen charities "Irish Society for Autism" and "Dogs for the Disabled" at Friday's assembly. We are very proud of them...
The two Sixth Classes did a tremendous job today selling sweets and chocolates to the rest of the children and staff in the school. The children bought treats and entered numerous competitions. Luckily the sun shone. They raised a lot of money for two worthy charities Autism Ireland and Dogs for the Disabled. The day finished with a whole school Bingo over Zoom. Thanks to all the parents for their generous donations of prizes, chocolates and sweets to make the day a wonderful success. See the Gallery for Photos of our Sweet Sale.
On Tuesday 5th October all our classes went on a sponsored walk. Junior Infants to Fourth Class went to Marlay Park. All the Fifth and Sixth Classes climbed up Three Rock. A lovely day had by all. Thanks to the Parents' Association for helping our younger children cross the road and supplying the muffins and apples. Thanks to Ms Hayes for liaising with the PA and co-ordinating the event in school. Our Annual School Walk is an important fundraiser for our school. Children can return their sponsor cards to their class teachers.

To date, we have received six ‘Discover Primary Science and Maths Awards’ .
We compiled a folder of all the science work that has been undertaken by the children in the school throughout the year.
All the strands of the Science curriculum were represented, as well as visitors to the school and visits the children made to some of the Discover primary science centres. We had fun while we learned. We look forward to lots more science activities in the future. Sincere thanks to all the teachers and parents who support the children each year.Read More »
