Every year on the 22nd February Guides throughout the world celebrate ‘World Thinking Day’. This is a day when they think about their ‘sisters’ (and ‘brothers’) in all the countries of the world, the meaning of Guiding, and its global impact. Many of the girls in RPNS are Ladybirds, Brownies and Guides and on World Thinking Day they wore their uniforms to school. You can see in the photos that between them they have lots of badges which they have worked very hard to earn. Happy World Thinking Day!
On Sunday 4th February the choir took part in the Dublin Peace Proms concert in the RDS along with two thousand other children and the Cross Border Orchestra of Ireland. It was a great experience and enjoyed by everyone. Well done to the choir for all their hard work!
In 2nd Class we also learnt all about Antarctica. We learnt a lot about penguins and the children wrote facts about penguins. They also researched and completed mini projects on the 17 different species of penguins. Then they drew and coloured a penguin. They worked so hard learning all about Penguins and Antarctica.
2nd Class were learning all about the Arctic.
They researched and completed projects on Arctic Animals. They learnt about igloos and then made their own out of clay. They also learnt all about the Northern Lights and made their own Chalk pastel versions of the Northern Lights.
They loved learning all about the Arctic.
