We´ve had some great fun with the last two weeks- we had our Active Week, Biodiversity Week where the local plants and wildlife were explored and many boys have developed gardening green fingers. Finally we had our bakeoff and Mr. Reale has today annouced that Charlie from Ms. Tynan´s class is the winner with his “Social Distancing” Cake!! Well done everyone!
This duck family can be seen on the Dodder below the weir at Lr. Dodder Rd., Rathfarnham. They are now around a month old and have lost four of their number , maybe to predators. They also had to survive a few days last week when the river was in flood after very heavy rain.
And here’s an interesting video on ducklings leaving a nest box when they are just one or two days old.
Today is the day we should be competing with other schools in the Cumann na mBunscol primary schools athletics. This year it was not to be but we can look back at previous years and look forward to next year with these photos and videos. Hopefully we will be back doing laps and running in cross country events from September. Meanwhile here are some athletics coaching videos to help keep you fit and learn some new skills.
