The Senior Classroom participated in the Our World Irish Aid Awards this year. The theme was 'For People and Planet'. After a lot of discussion, we decided to concentrate on Ethiopia and how the lives of children there compare to our own lives and things that are being done to help. We decided to create a comic to display our learning and understand, and we invented out own superhero called Captain Irish Aid. The title of our project was called "For People and Planet: The Adventures of Captain Irish Aid in Ethiopia". Our project was very well received and we were shortlisted as one of fifteen regional finalists. We received a wonderful plaque for our achievement. Well done to everyone involved. Yet more success for our wonderful school.
The Senior Classroom also got their hands dirty while exploring the medium of clay. The end result was many unusual and interesting items. Well done!
The Senior Classroom got creative (and messy) during the construction strand unit. They turned out great!
Several times during the school year, the Senior Classroom took part in Maths Trails to consolidate their learning over numerous strand units.
The Senior Classroom put their green fingers to use, helping Mrs. McKenna to plant some window boxes for the school.
Our 6th Class pupils created some beautiful pieces while preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation. This included their Confirmation tree which had the Gifts of the Holy Spirit at the root of the tree & from which grew the Fruits of the Holy Spirit. They also created their own personal Confirmation scrapbook which recorded their lives and the sacraments they've received so far.
The busiest small school in Ireland
