This week in 4th Class we did so much.
For Irish we read a story called Seo e Jimmy. So a boy called Bob told us about his friend Jimmy.
In History we learned about Clann Lir.
Art was so much fun, we made self portraits .We held a spoon to show our reflection.
On Friday a person came in to do skip-hop with us and we were allowed to buy a skipping rope.
I think think this week everybody enjoyed school.
The week before 4th class made bridges using paper and tape and tested them to see who had designed the strongest.
This year we are working on Gaeilge as part of our School Self Evaluation and School Improvement Plan. Each week we will all learn a ‘Frás na Seachtaine’ (phrase of the week). You can access the Frásaí na Seachtaine here so you can practice with your child at home! You can also find the list on the ‘Helping your child’ page.
Welcome back to school everyone. After the lovely long sunny summer that we have had let’s hope everyone is fully recharged and ready for the year ahead.

School ended on Thursday 28th June for all pupils.
Our last day was full of fun beginning with a lovely service led by 6th class.
At breaktime an ice-cream van arrived and each child got a 99. There were many happy and ice-creamy faces!
We wish everyone a safe and happy summer and we look forward to seeing you all back on Thursday 30th August 2018. Happy holidays!
A barbecue and disco was held in school on Friday 22nd June for all the 6th class pupils and their parents. It was a beautiful evening and everyone enjoyed the sunshine and shared some lovely food.
6th class had a disco and later sang for their parents before being presented with graduation certificates.

A huge thank to Carolyne Ross who made the fabulous graduation cake!
We wish 6th class all the best as they start their new schools in September.
Congratulations to the 22nd June winners!
On Monday we had the dedication of our memorial garden to the memory of Claire who passed away last Christmas. We all miss her so much and hope that the garden will be a place of play, colour, fun and peace and will help us to keep Claire alive in our memories in the years to come. It was lovely to welcome Claire’s family back to school to share in the dedication and remember the beautiful and beloved girl that Claire was.
Thank you to everyone who helped make this garden: Elma Fenton who designed it, Brian Maguire of Lake County Landscapes for building it, our past pupils and parents who painted the pencil fence, the pupils who planted and created the lovely artwork.
