This was a 'Project Week', so we had a great day on Friday presenting all our projects to the class.
We held a Coffee Morning in school on Thursday, 20th September in aid of Mayo Roscommon Hospice. €190 was raised and a great morning was had after all our hard work baking goodies. Thank you to all who supported this worthy cause!
We went to Carraholly in Westport. 4th,5th and 6th classes went to play Tag Rugby. We all played a good few games we were split into three groups we won some games and lost some.But we all had a great time.
In 5th and 6th SPHE classes, we have been discussing Mental Health issues over the past term. We decided to highlight the importance of talking to someone if we feel upset or anxious about anything in our lives, no matter how big or small. Sometimes, we carry sadness inside us and it is not good for our mental health to bottle things up. It ALWAYS helps to talk it out with someone we trust.
Here is our short film called 'Don't give up, Speak Up!'. We hope it carries an important, strong and hopeful message to everyone who watches it.
Special thanks to Hannah for being a great editor, to Sarah for her fabulous acting and to Lily for helping us to film some scenes.
We celebrated the Children's Book Festival with a very enjoyable art workshop at Louisburgh Library with Steph Troy. We chose a phrase from a favourite book and used it to inspire our mask paintings. Thanks to Mary and Steph for hosting and working with us. Delighted with our creative masterpieces!
