Schools were directed to close on Thursday 12th March, so children have been learning at home since then. Here are snippets of what we have been up to..
5th and 6th class took part in the Junior Entrepreneur Programme this year. We formed teams to come up with great small businesses - healthy edible goodies, jewellery boxes, keyrings, customised phone cases and even a Jellyfish Sting Kit! We conducted market research, organised budgets and roles within our companies and pitched our ideas to the 'Dragons'. We had great feedback from our celebrity 'dragons' during 'Dragon's Den' at Killeen NS. Míle buíochas to Kris, Mary and Shauna for giving superb advice to each group and interesting ways to improve each of our business ideas. Plans for a 'Market Day' have to be shelved for the moment, but we hope to continue this project when we return to school..support local business!!
Check out the latest video production "It All Works Out" by 5th & 6th Class. Well done boys & girls!
A very special day as we received the sacrament of Confirmation on 28th February 2019. Thanks to everyone who helped to prepare us and may God bless each one of us in the years ahead. Here we are with Archbishop Michael Neary after the ceremony.
We continue to work on our Erasmus Project with Spain and Malta. At the moment we are teaching each other traditional songs. Our eTwinSpace is full of interesting pages and we check in most days. Soon we will work on a cultural project in mixed groups. Really enjoying this Sharing and Learning Together Project!
Fantastic work by 5th and 6th class in organising an Odd Socks and Shoes Day, Talent Show and Monster Raffle in aid of this very worthy cause. We are keeping Regina in our prayers.
We had a great morning on Saturday 19th January when we attended Louisburgh Community Futures' 'Sustainable Energy Awareness Day' and showcased our school projects. We also distributed energy saving tips for all. Well done to Susanna for her wonderful poem!
This was a 'Project Week', so we had a great day on Friday presenting all our projects to the class.
