School closure- challenges!

We may be closed but that doesn’t mean we can’t still learn! Teachers will be posting work along the way and Ms. Russell will be posting daily challenges and ideas on Dojo.

Here is a selection of some of our St. Patrick’s Day artwork! Great creativity guys! We will announce winners later. Enjoy!

Lenten Sacred Space

We spoke at Assembly about Lent being a time to think about others and not treat ourselves too much. We reminded them about giving even a little of their pocket money to those less fortunate (ie Trócaire box). Many thanks to Ms. Byrne for the seasonal flowers and the Lenten decor.

Below is the link to the poster that we are displaying in school, received from Department of Education with regard to Coronavirus. Teachers have revised hand washing and sneezing/coughing etiquette with children. Children are permitted to bring their own hand towels to school.

What a fun way to mark #EngineersWeek!  Students got to experiment with stethoscopes and they took their own blood pressure. They tested reflexes and explored the brain! How interesting! 

Thank you to our wonderful PA for sponsoring Little Medical School – the students loved it!

Altura Credit Union Quiz

We are very proud of our Altura Credit Union quiz team who lost out on 2nd place after a nail biting tie breaker. There were in excess of 60 teams there so it is a huge achievement for them! Well done Cillian, Shane, Diarmuid and Charlie!

Concern Primary Debating – county finalists!

We are delighted to be progressing to the final of the Concern Primary School debating tournament. It has been such an educational experience as we have explored issues such as world hunger and technology consumption. We look forward to the final motion!

Thank you to our opponents from Murrintown NS who gave us a great counter argument. We were most appreciative of the feedback from adjudicators Sally Stevens, Pat Gately and Cora Keane.

We will spend the next month researching and putting our speeches together! Well done to our panel on their success thus far! Sam Proctor, Lizzy Morris, Sophia White, Diarmuid O’Shaughnessy, Charlie Church and Cillian Blackwell
