Spring is in the Air!

The school has recently received six new iPads. It is hoped that the children will gain greatly from using these iPads for range of activities to support learning and to further their ICT skills.

Miss McDaid’s 1st class used the iPads during their Maths stations and they really enjoyed some apps to practice addition!

2nd class have been busy making a beautiful spring Art display. Daffodils were made using toilet rolls. Spring lambs were created using paper plates and cotton wool. Nesting birds among new leaves complete the spring scene.

The whole school has been engaging in activities to promote Fairtrade fortnight. This kicked off with a presentation by Mr Patsy Toland from Self-Help Africa. Pupils attended talks in the Colgan Hall about food waste and conservation. We designed posters for display in a local cafes and shops, had quizzes, debates and discussions in class, social media campaigns, as well as hosted a coffee morning for parents using Fair Trade products.

Our school garden is doing very well after some hard work by the boys in the autumn. We have daffodil, crocus, primrose and hyacinth flowers as well as a selection of herbs at present.
