Welcome to our website. On behalf of the children, teachers, Special Needs Assistants, ancillary staff, parents, friends and the Board of Management, I am delighted to greet you.

In the words of our Mission Statement “We commit ourselves to making our school a safe and enjoyable place of education. We are open to the challenges of the future, encouraging effective co-operation between pupils, parents, staff, management and the local community”.
My wish is that you will enjoy reading about our life in our school.

This week in science we have been busy creating a freaking Frankenstein experiment! You will need a balloon, a marker, baking powder, vinegar, food colouring and a plastic bottle! Add some baking powder into the bottle and some food colouring! Next add in the vinegar! Put the balloon onto the top of the bottle and record what happens! Take a look and try it out at home!
We really enjoyed making clay heads in A6 this week. We made two bowls and joined them together to create the egg shape for our hollow heads. We used extra clay to make noses, eyes and hair. As it is Halloween very soon we decided to make scary heads. Some have mo-hawks, popping out eyes, hats and very long noses. We were very creative. Have a look at how they turned out. Check back next week to see the finished product when we paint them.
For the past few weeks all of the classes in our school have been working on their recount writing. There has been a lot of work on sequencing and using words that are much better than then. The students have really applied themselves to writing interesting recounts. Some of the best recounts from around the school are now on display on our Star Writers board. Well done to the everyone for working so hard.
