Biodiversity Day

We really enjoyed Biodiversity Day, which was on Wednesday 11th February. We would like to thank Mrs Nally for organising fantastic guest speakers to come in and talk to us about many different aspects of biodiversity. In 5th class, we had visits from Aidan Gray, who spoke to us about coastal biodiversity, and from James Murray, who told us all about biodiversity on the River Boyne. We also loved dressing up as part of the biodiversity theme!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

There was lots of red and pink in the classroom for Valentine’s day on Friday.

In the afternoon we went to the PE hall for our skipathon. Some of the children were able to skip over 100 times without stopping! It was lots of fun!

Catholic Schools Week 2015

It is Catholic Schools week  this week. We have been learning about how we should live like God wants us to live. We love one another. We are kind to each other. We share and we are honest.

We celebrated Grandparent’s Day on Wednesday. We made beautiful portraits of our nanas and grandads! They look fabulous!

Granny Peggy came to visit Room 13 today.

Granny Peggy came to visit our classroom today for Grandparents’ Day.

She told us lots of interesting things about when she was in primary school in Dublin.  She didn’t have to wear a school uniform when she was in school!  She also had to do 7th class because she was too young to go to secondary school – you had to be 14.

We really enjoyed our visit from Granny Peggy.  Thank you and Happy Grandparents’ Day from everyone in Room 13.

Gaelbhratach flag raised today

There was great excitement in St Mary’s this morning when Bláthnaid Ní Chofaigh came to the school to raise the Gaelbhratach flag.  We are one of only three schools in Ireland who have been awarded this flag so it was a very special occasion.
