Ms. Bleahene’s Rang a 6 were lucky to visit the new Microsoft campus in Leopardstown this week. As part of the visit they had to predict what the world would be like in 2050. You can read their submissions and an account of the visit here.

Congratulations to our boys – all 40 of them who earned 150 points or more on Manga High. They were awarded a medal to celebrate their achievement. Well done everyone!

We celebrated Safer Internet Day (SID 2018) on Tuesday 6th February.

We had some fun activities such as Super Selfie, MySelfie and the wider world, the Granny Rule, and making posters to help promote safer internet for all of us.

We also worked on an online code and debated issues such as ‘cyber bullying’. We all received a SID2018 wristband which reminds us that it UP2US to keep safe online.

This is the annual Hour of Code week and we are busy coding with all classes. Coding is very popular with the boys and we it is made even more attractive now with the integration of Star Wars, Minecraft, Flappy Birds and Moana. Hour of Code week is supported by many of the world’s celebrities in sport and IT. We will be following this up with some Scratch coding.
