Today, 19-09-2019, we welcomed nature expert Éanna ní Lamhna to our school to talk to us about marine biodiversity at Clone Beach. We enjoyed a beautiful walk to the beach that is just on our doorstep and had some play time while we were there. We learned about natural grasses and how the environment affects the ecosystems on the beach. We hope everyone enjoyed their day.
We are looking at ways to promote Maths outside the discrete Maths lesson and as such have developed a Maths Wall. Periodically, we will change the content here which will reflect a whole school approach to a given strand. Currently, we are looking at data. Over the year, we will use this wall to support the spread of Maths language in our school from juniors to 6th class. We will run little competitions and hang Maths related artwork and puzzles. We hope that this will pique the interest of our students!
Thank you to Ms. Carroll for her hard work!
Aistear: the Early Childhood Curriculum Framework celebrates early childhood as a time of being, and of enjoying and learning from experiences as they unfold.
The sound of pure joy emanates from the infant rooms during designated Aistear time. Check out these photos to see how a successful Aistear class works!

We received this information today. It may be of interest to parents.
As part of our ongoing commitment towards sustainability, we have decided to ban glitter from school. As glitter is a microplastic it causes pollution in the oceans and damage to marine life. We are also working to reduce the amount of waste in our school bins. Our school water bottle (to replace single use bottles) is available all year at a cost of €4 and is made from recycled materials
We hope everyone had a lovely summer and all are refreshed! We will reopen on Wednesday 28th from 9am for senior infants-6th class and from 10-12 for our incoming junior infants.
School uniforms, crests and sustainable water bottles will be on sale in school on Tuesday 27th from 10-12.
See you soon!
