Camogie.

Our camogie team has qualified for the final of the Allianz Cumann na mBunscol competition defeating Ballon N.S. and Gaelscoil Ceatharlach on the way. Fingers crossed the girls can retain the trophy for a fourth successive year.

Good luck girls.

Grandparents Mass

Grandparents mass was held in St. Andrews church on Friday 13th May. Beautiful weather accompanied all the children as they walked to the church to celebrate the very important role grandparents play in their lives. Representatives from each class participated in the mass and both parents and grandparents were invited back to the school afterwards to enjoy tea and cakes. With the school walls full of stories, poems and pictures about grandparents, people spent time walking through and admiring the children’s work. The sensory garden looked beautiful in the sun and  thanks to the parent’s council for their help with the catering.

 

2016 chickens

Ms O’Neill brought in seven eggs. They were in the incubator for three weeks. The temperature had to be kept at 37 degrees Celsius. The first one hatched on Tuesday 26th April. By Wednesday 27th April we had six chickens! At first they were under a red lamp and we couldn’t touch them.

School was closed so we didn’t see them for nearly  two weeks. They doubled in size in that time. Now they are in their own coup in the school garden. We can lift them up and touch them gently. They learning how to fly and how to catch worms!

We are going to keep them along with the three hens we already have. We hope to have lots of fresh eggs in school when they begin to lay eggs!
