Thank you so much to the wonderful boys in our school who made up gift boxes for children who may not otherwise get a gift at Christmas. The boxes were collected today. Ms Durkan’s class helped fill the collection van and we got a thank you certificate for our efforts. It feels good to help others. Happy boys today!
Our Student Council got together to think about how to prevent bullying behaviour in our school and about ways to help and support pupils who have been bullied and who may have bullied. They decided upon a poster competition to raise awareness and get everyone talking about this serious issue.
Before the break we had fun with Maths!
Maths trails, Maths TV, Maths games, Maths art – you can find Maths everywhere!
Our boys celebrated Engineers week both at home and at school with the help of RTE School Hub. The boys had access to Virtual Shows and enjoyed challenges daily. Our infants loved their construction class where they made some creative 3D structures and tricky mazes.
World Book Day 2021 fell on March 4th – celebrating everything to do with literature and reading. We had a fun day in school encouraging love of reading and dressing up as our favourite characters at home and at school,

Wellbeing Wednesday – The boys designed and wrote their own acrostic poems using words we each associated with “WELLBEING”
Thriving Thursday – the class reflected on different activities and things in our life that help us to thrive, give us energy and motivate us.
Feel-good Friday – the boys finished Children’s Mental Health week by summing up things that we were proud of, what we enjoyed and what went well for us this week.
We are so proud of our first class boys for the amazing effort they put into their work this week and their positive attitudes and outlooks are something to be admired.
We´ve had some great fun with the last two weeks- we had our Active Week, Art week and Biodiversity Week where the local plants and wildlife were explored and many boys have developed gardening green fingers. One boy was missing school so much he made his own school with Lego! Finally we had our bakeoff and Mr. Reale has just announced that Charlie from Ms. Tynan´s class is the winner with his “Social Distancing” Cake!! Well done everyone!
