Seachtain na Gaeilge

Bhaineamar go léir taitneamh as Seachtain na Gaeilge. Bhí Comórtas na bPostaer ar siúl agus bhí pictiúirí álainn ildaite timpeall na scoile

Bhí na rinceoirí ag damhsa sa halla. Bhí siad gléasta go hálainn




Terenure Garda Station

We had a fantastic trip to our local Garda Station today. We were shown around by Garda Sé who taught us about the different parts of his uniform and he showed us how he used his walkie-talkie to keep in touch with the gardai back in the station. We saw speed guns and breathalyser machines. We all got a turn on the Garda motorbike but we weren’t too happy about being held in the cell…..hopefully that will be the last time any of us see the inside of a cell!! Thank you to everyone in Terenure Garda Station for making us feel so welcome and for everything you do to keep us safe.


Coding Workshop

Some girls from Ms. Carney’s 4th class were delighted to attend a coding workshop in Hubspot today. The girls played a game called Moana and learned some basic coding skills. They also learned about the different parts of the computer and did a fun exercise designing a laptop. Some of the girls created some interesting apps and stickers for their laptops.


When we were finished each pupil received a certificate and a goody bag. A big thank you to Barbara McCarthy, a parent of one of our pupils, who organised the day for us.


Hopefully some of our pupils will become engineers in the future, and like the book we received today become “girls who code”

Snowy Scenes !

It’s hard to believe just how much snow we had around the school! Our caretaker Raz has worked tirelessly to make sure we could open this morning. We all had a great few days off playing in the snow but we’re delighted to back to our normal routine today.

Printing with Jane

On her  most recent visit Jane continued to explore printing technique with the children. It was an intensely busy session and the girls produced individually and in groups.

The group print involved all members working together, deciding on the content and what colours to use. There was a huge degree of excitement as each piece was revealed and they ended up creating beautiful prints to represent the four seasons.


Investigating habitats

Continuing our activities with visiting artist Jane Groves, Ms Flood’s class went on an exploratory walk to Lakelands, looking for  inspiration to help them  work later on in the classroom.   

The girls were full of energy and enthusiasm looking for natural elements which represented signs of Spring. They collected leaves, feathers and catkins, they heard a great variety of birds during the time they spent outdoors. They really enjoyed a mirror walk where they observed the habitat overhead, Great Fun!!

When we returned Jane and the girls began drawing, the level of concentration was  amazing.

Following this Jane showed the girls printing  procedure. The moment of revealing  the end product  was exciting and everybody was pleased with the result of their work.

We are looking forward to Jane’s next visit.



Third Class update!

Third class have been busy learning about China and Chinese New Year. At assembly in January, third class sang “Kung Hei Fat Choy!” and spoke about the important traditions and festivals associated with Chinese New Year. 2018 is the year of the dog, and Chinese new year will be celebrated on February 16th. .

Third Class News!

We really enjoyed meeting some of the fascinating reptiles from the National Reptile Zoo when they visited our school in January. We learned about tarantulas, lizards and snakes. Here are some of Ms O’Neill’s girls who decided to take a closer look!

A Visit From Dog’s Trust

Junior Infants were very lucky today as they were visited by Lucy the Cavalier King Charles and her owner Audrey. They work for Dog’s Trust Charity and they taught us how to take care of a dog and also how to safely pet a dog.

Audrey taught us the three important rules of safety with dogs.

1. If they’re eating….leave them alone.

2. If they’re sleeping….leave them alone.

3. If they’re not with their owner…..leave them alone.

We really enjoyed our special visit today as we are learning about the Pet Shop in our Aistear home corner.

Our next theme will be the Garda Station so we are hoping to visit Terenure Garda Station. Watch this space for an update soon!
