Lego Workshops

We had great fun last week doing Lego workshops. The girls from 2nd, 3rd and 4th classes made a variety of objects from Lego. We then used the computer to design a programme to make our spinners, robots and crocodiles move. We loved designing and working like engineers !

Communion 2015

The two second classes made their First Holy Communion on Saturday May 9th. Father Philip officiated at the ceremony during which the children read and sang beautifully. After the Mass the Parents Association hosted the annual white party which the children and their families thoroughly enjoyed. Congratulations to all the girls and their families. Well done also to Ms. Coughlan and Ms. Collins who worked so hard to prepare the girls for their big day. A huge thank you  to Ms. Keating and her choir who sang exquisitely.

Chicks a Hatching !

For the past 21 days Ms. Brannocks class have been incubating chicken eggs. The class has been observing the growth of the chicks through an x-ray chart.

The class were delighted to discover when we came into school today that two chicks had hatched. The chicks were named Scramble Joe and Quenn. Hopefully tomorrow we will have another surprise waiting for us.

Brian O’Driscoll’s visit to school

Last Wednesday we had a very special surprise visitor to school. Brian O’Driscoll dropped by to say hello with the RBS 6 Nations trophy. We were very honoured in 1st class to be in on the secret and to put on an assembly for Brian filled with facts, questions and singing. He was very impressed with the wonderful reception he received and everyone had a chance to meet the legend himself. Brian you’re welcome back anytime!!

Cha Cha Dancing

For 6 weeks Naoise’s mum Emma came in twice a week to teach us the Cha Cha dance. At first we found it difficult to remember the steps but in the end we were able to do the cha cha basic step, the barn dance, the New Yorker step, and a basic waltz. Last Thursday we had our Strictly Come Dancing final in the hall. Some of us were lucky and talented enough to win trophies and some won medals. Ms. Beatty and Ms. Tully picked out the winners! We had a super 6 weeks and would like to thank Emma so much for giving up her time.
