Halloween Games Past and Present


During their recent History lessons, the students in Mrs Walters'/Mrs Slevin's Fifth Class have been investigating games from the past and comparing them to the games they play today. They interviewed, parents, grandparents and teachers, asking about outdoor and indoor games. With the Halloween holidays approaching, they had a special interest in games played at Halloween. Some of the games played by the children's grandparents have been passed down from generation to generation and are still enjoyed today. As an end of term treat today, the boys and girls had great fun playing many of those Halloween games!

Chocolate Pudding Delight!


On Friday last, the students from Mr Beehan's Sixth Class got a fabulous surprise when their classmate, Rania Connell, treated them to a cooking masterclass. She prepared a Romanian style chocolate pudding for her classmates to sample. No such thing as a free lunch though! While Rania worked on the cooking, the rest of the class learned all about Romania. A big thank you to Rania and especially to her mum for sharing her wonderful recipe with us.

Settling in Well

Our new junior infant students have just finished their first full week in school and are settling into their new surroundings very well! By now, many are walking to class on their own in the mornings, eager to start the day!  

The school playground can be quite daunting to these new students and in an attempt to help them settle in, our sixth class students spent some time with them today and taught them some of the old playground games that have been keeping children active and healthy for decades. This will become a weekly event and I have no doubt that both the junior infants and the sixth class pupils will be looking forward to it each week.
