Ms. Russell gave a helping hand to the team! Great fun!! *Turn sideways to view!
We love this new addition to our outdoor play area! Click on the links to see how happy our infants were to try out our new swing! IMG_4757 IMG_4758 IMG_4759 IMG_4760 (1)
We are delighted that the sun is shining and we are finally able to celebrate Active Week – one of our favourite times of year here in Scoil Ghormáin Naofa! Mr. Breen and Fiona started the proceedings with Circuits for ‘Wake UP Shake Up’ and a really cool beanbag game that gets pretty competitive!
We are delighted to be organising a book collection for children in Malawi. Malawi is a landlocked country on the continent of Africa with a very low GDP. We were shocked to learn that the pupil teacher ratio in Junior Infants is 130:1 and the children have no books. As an English speaking country, they will find our books most useful. We are so lucky and privileged to have access to so many good quality reading materials. We hope that our students have felt the importance of selecting some of their pre-loved books for donation and of the impact that this will make to the lives of these children.
The excitement of new toys! Our students were delighted to receive these new wooden toys to play with at breaktime!
Our school is really enjoying the Junior Achiever programme in collaboration with volunteer parents from Elavon. Here are 2nd/3rd class students with some of the lovely resources they get as they discover more about city life.
26/05/2021 Thank you to Eimear Dodd and Cathy Lee for featuring our school in this week’s edition of The Wicklow People and The Gorey Guardian!
Ms. Ní Shuilleabháin’s 6th class students compiled a really interesting study of the native trees in our field. We are very fortunate to have such a diverse range of trees to study and appreciate. The use of a tree identification app was a fun way of incorporating digital learning into the process. Students also compiled their own projects on the trees which I will also post to the website on completion. Great work 6th class!
We were delighted to welcome Micheál O’Scannail and News2Day to our school today to film our outdoor endeavours in celebration of World Bee Day! Our students had a ball recording in the rainy weather! The wellies and raincoats certainly came in handy! We are delighted to see the fruits of our labour already – click on this video to see one of our stripy visitors busy at work! We are so proud of 2nd/3rd class for their super representation of us. We can’t wait to hear their biodiversity rap on RTÉ at 4.20 today!
