Vegetable Garden

A few weeks ago we posted some pictures of our new vegetable garden. It has come on so well since then.  Children from all classes with the help of Gabrielle have been watering the vegetables especially in the hot weather when they were watered a few times a day.  The children in 1st and 2nd went out to pull all the weeds one day, they did a great job!

School Tour

Our school tours this year were very successful.  The children in senior infants, 1st and 2nd went to Carrick on Shannon and had a great day out in kidz kingdom, supermacs lunch and the cinema.  The children in 3rd, 4th, 5th & 6th went to Tayto park and had a great day out there.

 

Playground

Mrs. Dervin and Ms. Stenson brought the children in Junior Infants, Senior Infants, 1st Class and 2nd Class to the playground a few weeks ago.  It was a great day out and the weather was lovely. The children brought their lunch and had a picnic and time to play.  The children from 3rd & 4th also went to the playground during the nice weather, it is great to have such a lovely facility on our doorstep!

Green Flag award

Our school recently received our 6th Green flag.  There was an awards ceremony in the Hudson Bay Hotel and Mrs. Dervin attended with Gabrielle and three children from the school.  Sadie, Jessica and Ciara were the lucky children and had a great day out in Athlone. This flag was awarded for Global Diversity and our school has been working hard on the topic for two years. Well done to all classes!
