SCIENCE WEEK 2019
This week is SCIENCE WEEK!! Ms. Kehoe has arranged AMAZING workshops for every class covering all areas of science. There will be something exciting happening everyday in every class! Maybe you’ll receive a visit from some exotic animals or travel into outer space. You’ll get to do some incredible experiments and you might even have to solve a murder mystery. Check back here at the end of the week to see what wonderful events took place.
World Book Day – 7th March 2019
World Book Day took place on March 7th. As in previous years, we held a ‘dress-up’ day to celebrate the event whereby children were encouraged to dress up as their favourite book character.We were absolutely blown away by the standard of the costumes on the day (both by children and staff!) A fantastic day which was filled with chat, discussion and reading was had by all. Older classes were teamed up to read with the younger classes and a quote hunt was organised. A huge congratulations to all the children who dressed-up and a massive thank you to all the parents for all your hard work behind the scenes. Believe us, your support doesn’t go unnoticed. Every child was given a book token that can be redeemed for a free ‘world book day’ book or to get 1.50euro off any book. Make sure to use this as an opportunity to encourage and foster a love for reading within your home.
