As part of our work on the Green Flag, we are working on Marine Life this week. We will share samples of our work. We look forward to enjoying our whole school annual walk to Clone beach as part of our marine studies! Junior Infants are learning marine related nursery rhymes and studied the basking shark. Aren’t their pictures wonderful?
We are thrilled that the grass is cut and playing on the field and in outdoor classroom has resumed!
Ms. Russell, Fiadh, Teagan and Kaylin went on a mission to collect a haul of books from Arklow library. When there, Head librarian Kathy showed the pupils a book that had recently been returned after 46 years! The fine was due to be well over €4,000! It was waived thankfully!

Kathy and team always go out of their way to help us find what we need and really help to foster a love of reading!
