This event was organised by 5th/6th Classes with the help of the PTA. It was a tremendous success with just short of €4000 being raised. All classes made Christmas crafts which were sold on the day.
As is traditional, Kriskindle is organised for all pupils and staff. There was great excitement when we finally got to open our presents.
Our School looked particularly beautiful at Christmas time, the centre piece being our lovely Christmas tree.
The children from 3rd to 6th Class attended the “Stars, Choirs and Carols” event in Croke Park on 19th December 2013. This was an attempt to break the record for the highest number of Carol Singers singing together in one place at one time. It was a primarily a fundraising event for two charities – Cliona’s Foundation and The Sanctuary. The children had a wonderful evening in Croke Park and enjoyed a visit to Mc Donald’s on the way home.
In November 5th/6th Class visited the Water Treatment Plant in Ballymore Eustace as part of our local project. They were given a most informative tour of the facility by Suzanne. The project won a prize in the CICE Teacher Training College
Maths Week created a great buzz in the school. Large cubes and cuboids and cylinders decorated our corridors. The pupils took part in Maths trails and Table Quizzes. 5th and 6th Classes made a giant poster entitled “Maths in our World”. Maths were incorporated into all lessons. 2nd and 3rd Classes composed an amazing prayer for Friday Assembly with a Maths related theme.
