A visit from West Midland Children’s Theatre Group

What a super morning with an in-school performance from West Midland Children’s Theatre Group! Their representation of ‘The Bluebird’ was thoroughly enjoyed by all children from junior infants to sixth class. What a great way to fulfill the ‘Exploring and making drama’ and ‘Reflecting on drama’ aspects of the curriculum. 8642185a-0a33-400e-9f2e-26598316da43 (Click the link for a clip!)

Junior and Senior Infants’ field trip in our locality!

There was such excitement today when our junior and senior infants embarked on a trip to the duck pond in Arklow. There they observed native wildlife including a swan and her cygnets! They really enjoyed the fairy door trail too! To end the trip the children played in the playground and had a picnic. They got a huge surprise when Ms. Russell arrived with ice pops. We hope that they have lovely memories from today! Well done to all on super behaviour!
