The Gardaí in Gardiner Street Garda Station were flat out working for the month of March. There was a spate of robberies in Room 6. Our Gardaí were busy arresting thieves, taking their fingerprints and trying to get them to make better choices in the future.

The week before the Easter holidays our gardaí all upgraded to detectives. There was a mass break out from our tricky word jail. These tricky word monsters were hiding all over the classroom. The tricky word monster He even went to the home of one of our girls and left her notes! They were very tricky monsters! On the last day of term all of the monsters had been found except for All. We arrived in that morning to discover that All had a left us a note and stolen all of our Easter treats! We had to examine his note carefully for clues. We realised that he was talking about the car park. We discovered All trying to break into Ms. Kelly’s car! He was quickly put back into jail. Luckily Room 6 is full of excellent detectives and they also found our treats too. We all agreed that being a detective is tough work but it’s definitely rewarding.

We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded our sixth Green-Schools flag for Global Citizenship: Litter and Waste! Can you believe it?!

Thank you to everyone who helped us achieve our new flag!

The children and staff of our school have worked very hard over the past two years to learn about how litter and waste affects our planet and what we can do as citizens to help look after our environment. If you think about it, all we need is each person to do one little thing to help and we could all make a huge difference together! You could decide that will throw all of your rubbish in the bin, recycling more, re-use instead of throwing things away or buy more fair trade products. The choice is yours!8765148949_47acc83ab2_o

 

 

PostHeaderIcon Ann’s Farm Comes to Gardiner Street School!

April 2018

We welcomed some wonderful visitors to our school this week! Ann from Heritage Schools came to visit and she brought some very special friends with her. Ann is a farmer and a nature expert and she brought along her little lamb, Tómas, a hen called Bríd and a rooster named Alfonso! Ann told us all about the animals. Tómas is only 13 days old! The children learned about the wool that we get from sheep and they got to see a lovely, colourful rug Ann had knitted from wool. Tómas got very hungry and Ann had to feed him with a bottle. She told us that roosters and hens puff up their feathers when they are mad!

Ann also brought along lots of bits of nature like ivy, primrose flowers and branches. We talked about how important biodiversity is to our planet. We don’t have to go very far to discover how wonderful nature is.

The children really enjoyed their day with Ann!
