Summer Assembly

We had a very colourful Summer assembly led by the 4th classes today. We sang songs and celebrated the end of another school year and the start of our holidays. Ms. Hume presented awards to all the pupils who had full attendance this year. She also presented a photo montage to JJ Macken, our artist in residence and thanked him for all the wonderful work he does in the school. We were all very sad to say goodbye to Ms. O’Toole and Ms. Tully’s class sang her favourite song. We’re all looking forward to a fun-filled and relaxing break!

3rd Class Tour

The 3rd classes had a great day out in Lullymore Heritage Park. The weather was glorious and we had an action packed fun-filled day. We saw a replica famine cottage, a soup kitchen, a hedge school and a Neolithic homestead. We learned how turf was made and we went on a ride on a road train. We saw lots of animals and got to play in the indoor and outdoor playgrounds. It was a fantastic day out ! Click on the photo below to view more images

Sports Day and Medal Ceremony

We had glorious sunshine for our annual Sports Day on June 18th. The junior school made their way to the VEC grounds at 9.30 followed by the senior classes at 10.30. Everybody was dressed in their team colours and a great crowd of parents turned out to cheer on the children. The girls participated in a wide variety of races and activities. The athletes were rewarded with some well deserved ice-cream on their return to the school. A fantastic day was had by all ! There were bouncing castles in the P.E. hall for additional fun. The following day we again had beautiful sunshine for the medal ceremony.The yellow team won the junior school sports and the blue team were successful at the senior end of the school. Ms Hume presented medals to all the participants.

Fitness Week

Fitness week started today. Lots of classes did some extra physical activities in the hall or outside. Many classes took a break from schoolwork and did “Drop Everything and Move”. At yard time some 6th class girls led a dance session. In the afternoon we took advantage of the sunshine and went outside for rounders , basketball, skipping and circuit training.

Senior Infants school tour to Glenroe Farm

Last Tuesday Senior Infants visited Glenroe Farm in Wicklow. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t on our side but we still had a great time at the farm. We learned a lot about different types of animals including sika deer, jersey cows and pot bellied pigs. We even had the chance to hold a guinea pig and a rabbit. When we finished our lunch we watched a puppet show where Emer showed us some magic tricks! The rain cleared up long enough for us to have fun in the playground before it was time to get back on the bus to school.

 

Trip to W5 in Belfast

Sixth class visited W5, an interactive science centre in Belfast for our school tour. We  visited the exhibitions and enjoyed laser tag as well as a forensic workshop. We had a fantastic time

WE read Charlotte’s Web

We read Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White this year in 4th class and really enjoyed it. When we were finished we chose our favourite scenes and used fabric and wool to illustrate them. We were divided into groups of three or four and worked on our pieces over a period of three weeks. It was great fun!

4th class visit to Rathfarnham Castle

On Tuesday the 11th of June the 4th classes walked from the school to Rathfarnham Castle (a journey there and back of approx 4km!)  where  we were given a guided tour.

We saw a 200 hundred year old doll’s house, old wax dolls, rocking horses and beautiful dresses and clothes from the 1800s. We saw some beautiful Rococo ceilings and learned  a lot about life in the 1800s.

After our visit we had a picnic lunch in the park and spent some time playing in the playground. We had a great day!
