We were lucky enough to be invited to a talk down in First Class by Eoghan Meagher. Eoghan is the Health and Safety Officer in Coolmore Stud and a parent in the school. We learned that farming is now the most dangerous job  in Ireland. Eoghan taught us about hazzards and what we can do to avoid them. Keeva volunteered to be our safety model and Ms Higgins got “harnessed up” and “locked on” to the projector. Eoghan showed us a video about being safe in the farm yard, especially when slurry is being agitated. Thanks to Eoghan for visiting and teaching us to be safer.

The children from First Class took part in the very first Literacy Lift Off Programme in our school before Christmas.  They worked really hard and all got certificates from Mr Hanamy after the ten week programme.   Well done to all. The day the photograph was taken some of the children  had their faces painted for the Christmas Concert – don’t they look funny?

In conjunction with Catholic Schools Week our school celebrated Grandparents Day on Tuesday.  The pupils of First and Sixth Class invited their grandparents to the school.  The event started with a short prayer service celebrated by School Chaplin Michael Harding.  Following this the pupils brought the grandparents to the classrooms where they had lots of interesting things to see and do. In First Class the pupils made flowers with their grandparents photograph in the centre of them.  The children also made certificates and wrote poems to give to their grandparents.  The pupils created booklets...

We are delighted to have a wonderful woodland beside our school – indeed beside our class.  We went for a walk and saw lots of different leaves.  We took rubbings of the bark on different trees and compared them when we came back to class.  We had great fun and are looking forward to our next walk.
